Regular Severna Park chiropractic care. A helpful
idea? Yes! Consider other helpful regular care ideas: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly monitor their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings twice a
year to keep plaque away. Cardiologists at the American Heart
Association recommend doing at least 150 minutes of
moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity each week to have
an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 30
minutes a day five days a week to keep the body in tune. Nutritionists
recommend proper food intake daily: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to feed the body well.
Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College
of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2)
Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not
necessarily daily once the pain is under control, but regularly to prevent spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Back And Neck Care Center treats
many Severna Park chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Severna Park
chiropractic patients who choose such care to maintain healthy and pain-free
spines as best they can.
BACK PAIN STATS
80% of us humans will have no less than one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of
us experiences back pain this moment. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
Back And Neck Care Center often informs patients that the existing
episode of back pain is getting your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is asking for care. It will not
be ignored. Your spine will be grateful for
a solid treatment plan to end the pain as
well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.
CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS
That’s where regular chiropractic care comes
into play. Certainly our Severna Park chiropractic patients understand
that chiropractic care lessens back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know
that they do not want to suffer with that pain again!
While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain will
not come back, preventing pain and/or its return to as mild as possible is a worthy
goal as is a goal to be able to do everyday activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A recent study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program found that such chiropractic maintenance
care decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced
activities and boosted the number of pain free weeks
between episodes. These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations
of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not avert
new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to reduce
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Severna Park back
pain patients, Back And Neck Care Center is here.
Listen to this PODCAST
with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care helped
his veteran patient contain his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
