You have a bout of back pain – first,
second, tenth. Are you curious about what that means going
forward? Of course! The trajectory – researchers’ name
for the path of back pain – of the Severna Park back pain
experience is unique to each, but there are issues
that may help foretell that course. Back And Neck Care Center offers
some input on the influence of lifestyle and
WHAT TO DO – Chiropractic
A new article’s findings make seeking chiropractic care
logical to influence the course of back pain. Patients
undergoing chiropractic care for their chronic (over 3 months) and acute (less than a month) low back pain who
reported “much better” or “better” at one week of care were 4 to 5 times more
likely to report improvement at 1 and 3 months of care.
More specifically, acute back pain patients who reported having
more severe pain and disability at the start of care
recovered faster. Most
patients with lumbar radicular leg pain bettered. Both chronic and acute back pain patients reported good outcomes. (1)
A similar study of the interdisciplinary care (spine
surgeons/chiropractors in a university hospital) of chronic back pain patients recorded
that almost half of the chronic low back pain patients cared with
chiropractic conservative care reported clinically relevant improvement. (2) Back And Neck Care Center
sees even greater outcomes with our particular form
of chiropractic care, Cox® Technic!
WHAT TO DO – More Chiropractic
A question arises: why halt chiropractic
care with pain relief? A study demonstrated that
low back pain patients who underwent chiropractic maintenance
care – chiropractic treatments on a regular basis unrelated to whether they
had symptoms – reported fewer
days of low back pain that limited their activities of daily living contrasted
with getting treatment only when a new low back pain episode arose. (3) More Severna Park
chiropractic care on a regular basis seems beneficial.
WHAT TO DO – More Activity
More is not always better, but some kinds of
more are better, like chiropractic and activity. A low back pain sufferer
with a lifetime history of back pain may want to consider engaging
in higher volumes of moderate to vigorous physical activity since it
was found to reduce the odds of developing
severe low back pain over the next year. (4) Back And Neck Care Center knows
none of us back pain sufferers enjoys hearing that,
but it is the finding of a study. More intense exercise
was shown beneficial. Understand too that a sedentary lifestyle –
work and/or pleasure time – moderately raises the risk
of low back pain. (5) There is a middle ground! Let us at
Back And Neck Care Center find that with you, the spot that inhibits
back pain and keeps you active as you want to be.
