Quality of life. That’s the key
factor in aging well and taking pleasure in life to its fullest.
Back And Neck Care Center is honored to work with
Severna Park chiropractic patients to boost their odds
of aging well and enjoying the best quality of life
possible. Severna Park back pain patients appreciate knowing what factors might adversely impact
their quality of life and their options to diminish the
influence of those factors.
FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE
Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis,
disc degeneration and related back pain decrease
quality of life. These conditions often arise in mid-life and
older life, rendering life not very pleasant.
Researchers reported on factors that seem to reduce
the odds of acquiring these problems.
What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Fine spinal alignment.
Greater back muscle strength. No trouble with locomotion syndrome –
trouble with switching positions. Good body balance. With all
of these good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can enjoy
a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are notoriously key issues in motor control functions
like balance, attempts to strengthen these explicitly
are important to attempt to turn around
such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is often a part
of the chiropractic treatment plan for Severna Park back pain patients.
Back And Neck Care Center realizes that back pain sufferers have many options of care from which to pick and shares what the
researchers say about the options.
To get the most out of an option, the
circumstances must be optimal. Back
surgery may not always be the choice option for every Severna Park
back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery does not always produce
fully the desired outcome, especially for
patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability
that accompany it lingered for 29% to 42%
of patients who reportedly had minimal
to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain recommend
non-surgical options like spinal manipulation first.
Chiropractic care is all about spinal manipulation.
Chiropractic care at Back And Neck Care Center is all about Cox®
Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to get
the desired pain reduction outcome.
Severna Park CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES
Chiropractic researchers are presently studying the specific effects of chiropractic care’s
spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance improvement in patients with low back pain, especially
active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were related to back pain. (4) Low back pain is a common
reason for disability in the military. Seeing as
how military personnel are people like the rest of us, this
study’s findings will be interesting! Another study that added
chiropractic - spinal
manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic
approaches like rehabilitative exercise,
cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical
care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – enhanced
short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty
military. (5) Back And Neck Care Center gathers these positive
studies to share with our Severna Park back pain patients.
