Continued Brooks Chiropractic Care Benefits Back Pain Management

Regular Brooks chiropractic care. A helpful idea? Yep! Consider other good regular care ideas: Endocrinologists recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars. Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times a year to keep plaque at bay. Cardiologists at the American Heart Association recommend exercising at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity a week to have an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 30 minutes a day five days a week to maintain optimal health for the body.  Nutritionists recommend proper food intake daily: fruits, veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to nourish the body properly. Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2) Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not necessarily every day once the pain is under control, but regularly to keep in check spine pain – back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Soft Health and Healing Clinic sees many Brooks chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Brooks chiropractic patients who choose such care to keep their spines as healthy and pain-free as possible.

BACK PAIN STATS

80% of us humans will have at least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. One in 3 of us experiences back pain this moment. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities. Soft Health and Healing Clinic often tells patients that the existing episode of back pain is getting your attention for a reason. If for no other reason, it is asking for care. It will not be disregarded. Your spine will be grateful for a solid treatment plan to get rid of the pain as well as a plan to maintain its mobility and health.

CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS

That’s where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Surely our Brooks chiropractic patients realize that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know that they don’t want to suffer with that pain again! While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain will not come back, preventing pain and/or its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free and worry free as possible. A new study titled the Nordic Maintenance Care Program stated that such chiropractic maintenance care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced activities and boosted the number of pain free weeks between episodes. These outcomes may well help patients and doctors realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, doesn’t stop new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to decrease life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have recurrent and persistent low back pain.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Joel Dixon  on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care helped his veteran patient contain his back pain so that he could live his life the way he wants to live it.
