Quality of life. That’s the key
factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest.
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is privileged to work with
Pensacola chiropractic patients to enhance their chances
of aging well and enjoying the best quality of life
possible. Pensacola back pain patients value knowing what factors might negatively affect
their quality of life and their options to diminish the
influence of those factors.
FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE
Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis,
disc degeneration and related back pain lower
quality of life. These conditions often happen in mid-life and
older life, making life not very enjoyable.
Researchers found factors that seem to decrease
the odds of acquiring these problems.
What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Good spinal alignment.
Greater back muscle strength. No trouble with locomotion syndrome –
trouble with moving from one position to
another, one place to another. Stable body balance. With all
of these good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can expect
a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are known
to be key factors in motor control functions
like balance, efforts to strengthen these explicitly
are important to attempt to turn around
such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is often a part
of the chiropractic treatment plan for Pensacola back pain patients.
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center knows that back pain sufferers have many healthcare
forms of care from which to pick and shares what the
researchers say about such options.
To get the most out of an option, the
circumstances must be optimal. Back
surgery may not always be the choice option for every Pensacola
back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery does not always produce
fully the desired outcome, especially for
patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability
that accompany it lingered for 29% to 42%
of patients who reportedly experienced little
to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain propose
non-surgical options like spinal manipulation first.
Chiropractic care is all about spinal manipulation.
Chiropractic care at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center incorporates Cox®
Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to get
the desired pain reduction outcome.
Pensacola CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES
Chiropractic researchers are currently looking
into the specific effects of chiropractic care’s
spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance better
outcomes in patients with low back pain, particularly
active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were related to back pain. (4) Low back pain is a frequent
cause of disability in the military. Seeing as
how military personnel are people like us all, this
study’s findings will be interesting! In another study, the addition of chiropractic care - spinal
manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic
approaches like rehabilitative exercise,
cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical
care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – enhanced
short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty
military. (5) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center gathers these positive
studies to share with our Pensacola back pain patients.
