You experience a bout of back pain – first,
second, tenth. Are you curious about what that means going
forward? Of course! The trajectory – researchers’ name
for the path of back pain – of the Carrolltown back pain
experience is unique to each, but there are factors
that may help forecast that course. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offers
a few ideas on the influence of lifestyle and
WHAT TO DO – Chiropractic
A new article’s findings make seeking chiropractic care
logical to impact the path of back pain. Patients
undergoing chiropractic care for their chronic (more
than 3 months) and acute (under a month) low back pain who
reported “much better” or “better” at one week of care were 4 to 5 times more
likely to report improvement at 30 days and 90 days of care.
Particularly, acute back pain patients who reported experiencing
more severe pain and disability in the beginning of care
recovered faster. Most
patients with lumbar radicular leg pain improved. Both chronic and acute back pain patients reported good outcomes. (1)
Another study of the interdisciplinary care (spine
surgeons/chiropractors in a university hospital) of chronic back pain patients recorded
that almost half of the chronic low back pain patients cared with
chiropractic conservative care reported clinically relevant improvement. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
sees even better outcomes with our particular form
of chiropractic care, Cox® Technic!
WHAT TO DO – More Chiropractic
A question arises: why stop chiropractic
care with pain relief? A study demonstrated that
low back pain patients who have chiropractic maintenance
care – chiropractic treatments on a regular basis regardless of their symptoms – reported fewer
days of low back pain that limited their activities of daily living compared
with getting treatment only when a new low back pain episode arose. (3) More Carrolltown
chiropractic care on a regular basis looks positive.
WHAT TO DO – More Activity
More is not always better, but some kinds of
more are better, like chiropractic and activity. A low back pain sufferer
with a lifetime history of back pain may want to try participating
in higher volumes of moderate to vigorous physical activity since it
was shown to reduce the odds of developing
severe low back pain over the following year. (4) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows
none of us back pain sufferers wants to hear that,
but it’s the finding of a study. More intense exercise
was shown beneficial. Understand too that a sedentary lifestyle –
work and/or pleasure time – moderately raises the risk
of low back pain. (5) There is a middle ground! Let’s at
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation uncover that with you, the spot that prevents
back pain and allows you to be as active as you want to be.
