pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation treats

BACK PAIN STATS
80% of us humans will have at
least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. One in 3 of
us has back pain this moment. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation often advises patients that the current
episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is begging for care. It won’t
be ignored. Your spine will appreciate
a solid treatment plan to get rid of the pain as
well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.
CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS
That’s where regular chiropractic care comes
into play. Certainly our Carrolltown chiropractic patients know
that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand
that they do not want to suffer with that pain again!
While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain won’t come back, keeping that pain
at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile
goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A new study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program stated that such chiropractic maintenance
care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced
activities and boosted the number of pain free weeks
between episodes. These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations
of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not stop
new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to decrease
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Carrolltown back
pain patients, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is here.
Listen to this PODCAST
with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he describes how 20 years of maintenance care benefited
