Exercise and Manipulation to Stop the Bother of Back Pain

What’s necessary to relieve back pain and sciatica? The latest practice guidelines by OPTIMa for the noninvasive management of low back pain point to a combination of approaches with manual therapy, patient education, staying active/exercise, and paracetamol or NSAIDs as first-line treatments. The recommendation to use paracetamol for acute low back pain is being reconsidered due to recent evidence and needs to be reconsidered says OPTIMa. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers’s approach to Vancouver back pain includes Cox Technic, exercise, patient education and nutrition as core parts of the treatment plan along with other chiropractic services to promote the quickest and most effective relief available. Certainly some Vancouver back pain patients benefit from NSAIDs at times to get through the worst of the pain. Vancouver Disc Centers works cooperatively with local healthcare colleagues for the benefit of our Vancouver chiropractic patients.

What do patients think of this approach to Vancouver back pain relief? Researchers point out all the time that the patient and his/her thoughts about care are highly influential as to the effectiveness and use of the recommended care. New study reports that patients like spinal manipulation and the competency of the doctor providing the treatment. Most patients say they don’t mind spinal manipulation and exercise for back pain and leg pain relief, but they do share that taking time for spinal manipulation sessions and disciplining themselves to do the home exercises is not very appealing.
