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 each week to make
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 right now. 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. (3) For these Brooks back
pain patients, Soft Health and Healing Clinic is here.
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.
