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 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!
