Continued Vancouver Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain Management

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 at bay. 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 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 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 is known to wax and wane not go away forever. 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.

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 benefited his veteran patient control his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
