BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
They run the gamut.
Vancouver Disc Centers hears about them all the time. Everyone from
friends, family members, researchers, doctors, others, have opinions
and stories. In light of the variability of back
pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization
of back pain care - exercise, spinal manipulation and
opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers
most. (1) We concur. We review
the research and mingle it with our
experience when developing a personalized treatment
plan for our back pain patients. With the expected growth of low
back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people around the world
to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug,
non-surgical choices for back pain are welcome, particularly
ones that are tested and documented
as beneficial. A a newly published paper regarding
the care for one type of back pain - continued back pain after
back surgery also called failed back surgery syndrome
(FBSS) - that often results in continued or increased opioid
pain medication use. The study found
that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression
Manipulation described reduction or discontinuation of opioid use in the course
of an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That is a positive outcome of a treatment approach to include in the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!
So what can our Vancouver chiropractic patients do
to control their back pain and its effect on their lives?
Sleep. Keep active. Makes their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain
sufferers listed that additional sleep, less sedentariness,
and increased moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was
beneficial. The authors shared an example of how swapping 30
minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep lessened
low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is vital!
(4) So too is a visit to the Vancouver chiropractor for spinal
manipulation as recommended in the guidelines published
by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having
good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain together with
exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Vancouver Disc Centers is experienced in delivering
gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, designing
a simple exercise plan, and recommending
therapy and/or more advance rehab as necessary or desired.
