BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
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.
