The Value of Vancouver Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you define that? Do you embody it? What are healthy living behaviors? Vancouver Disc Centers is all for healthy living. Vancouver Disc Centers sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Vancouver chiropractic patients can believe their Vancouver chiropractor to be an escort to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them cope with exisiting spine pain issues but also ward off future bouts of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best avoided.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, don’t they? A new study showed that men who took advantage of more of these healthy choices had lower risk of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Eating fruit and vegetables is another positive healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors are shown to lessen the chance of having long term upsetting low back pain in women and even potentially better the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Participating in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Utilizing a lumbar support belt improves postural control when standing on unlevel ground.  This may be notably welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unstable. (4) Vancouver Disc Centers works with our Vancouver back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues encourages more healthy behaviors. When patients are given the opportunity to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were lower than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access results in a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief reports that their familiarity with the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, how close they were to the doctor’s office, and credentials of the doctor influenced their choice.
