"Why do I need continued chiropractic
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Severna Park chiropractor,
just treat it and put a stop to the pain altogether so it doesn't come back?"
This is not an atypical
question, and it's also really
reasonable. The answer is fairly
understandable, too, though dual: we are born with spinal
issues or we develop them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with spinal weaknesses that will
be with us all life through. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are distinctive to one's
own spine. There is no route to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is ours. So we must learn how to use our spines so as to not trigger
pain. Your Severna Park chiropractor at Back And Neck Care Center can perform
the spinal manipulation designed to ease
your specific spinal condition. Then, you'll want to consider its
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You do not want to put
your now-pain-relieved spine in jeopardy again.
- nutritional needs - Back And Neck Care Center will suggest
some nutrition ideas to strengthen
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening requirements - Our simple exercises don't take long but will
take you and your spine far in preserving its strength!
It is in these on-going spine problems that
we - you and your Severna Park chiropractor - must
work together for the most welcome
outcome, even coming in for occasional spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us hurt our backs. We do
things that injure the seemingly healthiest
of spines: falling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting excess weight. You get the picture - things
we do in our normal activities of daily living may hurt
us, and we wind up with back pain. So, when we damage the spine to the
level that we cause intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now will contend
with a spinal weakness which may become the vulnerable link
in our spinal health.
We all must nurture a strong,
well-aligned spine and use the spine with the respect and knowledge of
dodging those situations
that could cause it pain.
How? You and your Severna Park chiropractor see
each other every so often.
An occasional visit to Back And Neck Care Center for spinal alignment
and assessment of healthy spine maintenance is appropriate. Post-continued
spinal manipulation after the initial
pain-relieving care is even described as a way to maintain
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is far better than
having to go through repeated treatment of Severna Park
back pain. It averts pain and suffering in the
present and reduces the chance of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A new report described the
reality of low back pain being a major reason for disability globally. It’s persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not known to just go away and
never return. Fortunately, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been reported as
effective in reducing painful days for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was reported to be
of high value viewed such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment concerned
others. (2) Back And Neck Care Center strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain decreases.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is disruptive. Relief is possible with
Back And Neck Care Center. Just understand that there is a logical need
and even benefit for periodic spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine conditions.
