Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

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.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

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.
