Back And Neck Care Center Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

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.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

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.
