Vancouver Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

Older back pain patients find relief with combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That is what new best practices guidelines recommend. Shocked? Not likely! Your Vancouver chiropractor treats your spine, and you treat your spine! Together, your Vancouver chiropractor and you the Vancouver back pain sufferer make a great spine care team. Vancouver Disc Centers is your local Vancouver chiropractic care center where Vancouver back pain patients meet their Vancouver chiropractor to establish a pain relieving treatment plan as well as a plan to prevent future back pain.

A new high-level research review reaffirms that spinal manipulation is safe for older adults suffering with back pain. Vancouver Disc Centers appreciates this verification! How did they do this? Researchers reviewed all published articles from 7 years to update current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. In the end, they reached agreement on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of back pain in older adults. They reinforced the existing statement about how safe spinal manipulation is for older back pain patients. The panel inserted two supplementary recommendations that (1) chiropractors should recommend exercise to back pain patients who are older and (2) manipulation and mobilization contribute to general positive outcomes not just for pain reduction. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers concurs! Vancouver chiropractic patients often seek care that will decrease their back pain. Then, they find Vancouver chiropractic care that goes beyond just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to embrace a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation method Vancouver Disc Centers employs is known as Cox Technic. From the research studies concerning this approach, it’s known that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) respond more favorably to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also showed that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – reacts better to exercise. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers recognizes that exercise is critical to manage back pain and prevent future back pain. Vancouver Disc Centers urges all our Vancouver chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.

Schedule your Vancouver chiropractic appointment with Vancouver Disc Centers to talk about Vancouver back pain relief and prevention in older adults with Vancouver chiropractic care and suitable Vancouver exercise. Your Vancouver chiropractor and you will act as a team as well as recommended spinal manipulation and exercise do to safely and effectively relieve low back pain.
