The Value of Brooks Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you define that? Do you embrace it? What are healthy living behaviors? Soft Health and Healing Clinic is all for healthy living. Soft Health and Healing Clinic sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Brooks chiropractic patients can expect their Brooks chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them cope with current spine pain issues but also ward off future episodes of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best prevented.

HEALTHY BEHAVIORS

What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Non-smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those sound about right, do they not? A recent study showed that men who took advantage of 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 positive healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors appeared to decrease the chance of having long term troubling 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 enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Utilizing a lumbar support orthosis improves postural control when standing on unstable ground.  This may be particularly welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unsteady. (4) Soft Health and Healing Clinic works with our Brooks back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.

CHOICE OF CARE

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 lower than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access makes a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief shows that their familiarity with the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, geographical proximity, and credentials of the doctor motivated their choice.
