Vancouver Back Pain Care and Exercise Guidelines

Guidelines. There are guidelines for everything! This post discusses some of the more recent guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other healthcare providers to boost the healing of Vancouver back pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a core part of back pain prevention as well as management that all providers encourage and all providers are worried are not always completed. Chiropractors like your own at Vancouver Disc Centers are health promoters and work to do that in the nicest, most caring way! Let us work together to get you better.


Quality in healthcare delivery is discussed a lot. Providers and patients want the best quality care possible in delivering care and getting care. Interprofessional collaboration is on the top of the list when researchers evaluate systems for the care of back pain like suitable use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also put together 70 quality indicators for chiropractic delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take into consideration patient worries and enhanced clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity certainly is a part of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Vancouver pain relief.


In a recent survey, chiropractors expressed that the biggest concern they held in managing back pain patients was patient follow through (coming to appointments, doing exercises, following at-home instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors stated that they were optimistic about healthier patient lifestyles. These chiropractors also reported that they were actively involved in promoting physical activity, suggesting exercises to patients for their particular condition, inquiring how the exercises are going, and advising patients in the proper way to do exercises as well as value of doing exercises. (4) One way that patients seem to respond more positively and be more willing to do physical activity is using a mobile app. Apps that are build built around reported pain, pain intensity, and app features like audio explanation and animation of each exercise are well received. (5)  Doing the right exercises in the right way typically brings about the rightfully desired outcome.


Core stabilization exercises are usually recommended to back pain patients. One new study that added in diaphragmatic breathing exercises found many advantages for chronic low back pain patients: enhanced muscle activity, chest expansion, quality of sleep, improved disability and physical activity and pain scores, decreased fear avoidance, and higher physical activity, and more. (6) As a partner on your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Vancouver Disc Centers feels a duty to encourage physical activity so that you can manage your own health a bit more. Our younger back pain and neck pain sufferers benefit. Our older adults who have aches and pains and/or Vancouver back pain and/or neck pain benefit, too!
