Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Shares Your 2024 Goal of Relief of Back Pain

A new year. A new goal. We all aim for something new in a new year. For Carrolltown back pain patients, a decrease in back pain is a reasonable goal with Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation by your side. Back pain sufferers may feel alone, but they aren’t, and research continues to produce and share hopeful reports of what works so that both the back pain sufferer and the chiropractor - and other involved healthcare providers – deliver the optimal care for the optimal outcome: less back pain. Start 2024 off right with Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation’s help for back pain relief! We have lots of effective chiropractic services


Suggestions and recommendations run the gamut. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows. Everyone from friends, family members, researchers, doctors, etc., have ideas and stories. In light of the variability of back pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization of back pain care - exercise, spinal manipulation and opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers best. (1) We agree. We review the research and mix it with our clinical experience to develop a personalized treatment plan for our back pain patients. With the expected growth of low back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people globally to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug, non-surgical options for back pain are welcome, particularly ones that are tested and documented to be beneficial.  A new paper was just published regarding the care for one type of back pain - continued back pain after back surgery also called failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) - that often results in continued or increased opioid pain medication use.  The study reported that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression Manipulation described reduction or discontinuation of opioid use during an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That’s a positive outcome of a treatment approach to include in the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!


So what can our Carrolltown chiropractic patients do to limit their back pain and its effect on their lives? Sleep. Keep active. Get to their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain sufferers noted that additional sleep, less sedentariness, and increased moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was beneficial. The authors shared an example of how swapping 30 minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep decreased low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is vital! (4) So too is a visit to the Carrolltown chiropractor for spinal manipulation as recommended in the guidelines published by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain together with exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is experienced in delivering gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, designing an easy exercise plan, and recommending therapy and/or more advance rehab as needed or desired. Trust us to help! Our Carrolltown back pain patients are in good hands.
