Continued Severna Park chiropractic care fosters back pain relief.

WHY SEE YOUR CHIROPRACTOR AFTER THE PAIN IS GONE? TO KEEP IT GONE!

Patients often ask how long they must visit for chiropractic care at Back And Neck Care Center. Ultimately, their relief determines this. For some the end of care is decided together, patient and the Severna Park chiropractor. For others, when the pain is . The patients decide for themselves. And when there’s no pain, it makes sense to quit coming. However, there may be a special consideration: If back pain is bothersome and prevents you from doing the things you want to do, continuing chiropractic care on a regular schedule (sometimes referred to as “maintenance care”) whether you are hurting or not helps. In a randomized control trial of 319 such patients, maintenance care decreased the number of painful day in acute episodes and increased the duration of pain-free days for back pain sufferers who have with recurrent and persistent low back pain. (1) Back pain is not typically cured. It is like a bruise on an apple. It won’t simply go away. The bruise is now a more vulnerable part of the apple. With back pain, the no-pain period is definitely welcome, and continued chiropractic care via a Severna Park chiropractic treatment plan designed together can only help prevent more and/or more painful back pain occurrences. Some patients request maintenance care after a few episodes of Severna Park back pain. Some set up a schedule right away to avoid starting over. Whichever patient type you are, Back And Neck Care Center is the Severna Park chiropractic care partner to see!

Severna Park exercise benefits patients with non-specific back pain and pre-back surgery patients though it is not often prescribed as much as opioids. 

Severna Park CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise Benefits Before Back Surgery and for Non-Specific Low Back Pain

A 16-week study of supervised resistance training with variable low, moderate and high intensity exercise during a week time frame helped patients with persistent non-specific low back pain. How? By bettering pain, daily function and disability, energy level, muscle strength, sleep, and perception of physical activity as beneficial. (2) Those are positive outcomes! Sadly, in the year before back surgery, only 34.8% of back pain patients had physical therapy (PT), 34.1% experienced at least one PT visit with exercise, and only 14.6% had a minimum of 6 exercise therapy visits. 84.4% got at least one opioid prescription fill with a mean of 6.1 unique fills each. (3) Conservative, non-drug care combining spinal manipulation and exercise are worthwhile pre-back surgery efforts. Back And Neck Care Center is ready to do this with you!
