Carrolltown Back Pain Care and Exercise Guidelines

Guidelines. There are guidelines everywhere! This post talks about some of the newer guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other healthcare providers to enhance the healing of Carrolltown back pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a core part of back pain prevention as well as management that all providers support and all providers worry aren’t always executed. Chiropractors like your own at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation are health promoters and work to do that in the kindest, most helpful way! Let us work together to get you better.


Everything in healthcare is about quality. Providers and patients desire the highest quality care possible in delivering care and getting care. Interprofessional collaboration rises to the top when researchers analyze systems for the care of back pain like proper use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also assembled 70 quality markers for chiropractic delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take into account patient concerns and enhanced clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity certainly is a part of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Carrolltown pain relief.


In a recent survey, chiropractors expressed that the biggest concern they had in treating back pain patients was patient follow through (coming to appointments, doing exercises, following at-home instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors reported that they had a positive opinion about healthier patient lifestyles. These chiropractors also reported that they were actively involved in promoting physical activity, suggesting exercises to patients for their particular issue, inquiring how the exercises are going, and counseling patients in the proper way to do exercises as well as benefit that comes from exercising. (4) One way that patients seem to follow through more positively and be more willing to do physical activity is the use of a mobile app. Apps that are build built around reported pain, pain intensity, and app features like audio explanation and animation of each exercise are well received. (5)  Doing the right exercises in the right way typically brings about the rightfully desired outcome.


Core stabilization exercises are usually recommended to back pain patients. One new study that incorporated diaphragmatic breathing exercises found many benefits for chronic low back pain patients: enhanced muscle activity, chest expansion, quality of sleep, improved disability and physical activity and pain scores, less fear avoidance, and increased physical activity, among others. (6) As a part of your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation feels a duty to promote physical activity so that you can manage your own health a bit more. Our younger Carrolltown back pain and neck pain sufferers get positive results. Our older adults who deal with aches and pains and/or back pain and/or neck pain get positive results, too!
