Regular Vancouver chiropractic care. A helpful
idea? Yep! Consider other good regular care concepts: 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 performing at least 150 minutes of
moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity a week to make
an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 150 minutes a week to keep the body in tune. Nutritionists
recommend a good diet a day: 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 every day once the pain is under control, but regularly to prevent spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Vancouver Disc Centers sees
many Vancouver chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Vancouver
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 experience at
least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. One in 3 of
us has back pain this moment. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
Vancouver Disc Centers often tells 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 won’t
be ignored. Your spine will welcome
an effective treatment plan to get rid of 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. Surely our Vancouver chiropractic patients understand
that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know
that they don’t want to suffer with that pain again!
While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain won’t come back, keeping that pain
at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile
goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A new study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program stated that such chiropractic maintenance
care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that limited
activities and boosted the number of pain free weeks
between episodes. These outcomes may well help patients and doctors realistically
temper their expectations
of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not prevent
new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to reduce
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Vancouver back
pain patients, Vancouver Disc Centers is here.

with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care benefited
his veteran patient control his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
