The Value of Carrolltown Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you describe that? Do you embody it? What are healthy living behaviors? Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is all about healthy living. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Carrolltown chiropractic patients can trust their Carrolltown chiropractor to be an escort to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them deal with exisiting spine pain issues but also avent future episodes of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best prevented.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Non-smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, do they not? A recent study showed that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had lower possibility of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is another favorable healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors are shown to reduce the possibility 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 improves the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Wearing a lumbar support belt increases postural control when standing on unlevel ground.  This may be notably helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unstable. (4) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation works with our Carrolltown back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues generates more healthy behaviors. When patients are able to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were less 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 knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network endorsements, how close they were to the doctor’s office, and doctor’s qualifications motivated their choice.
