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.
GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
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.
BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN
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.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
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
