Brooks Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

Older back pain patients find relief with combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That’s what new best practices guidelines recommend. Shocked? Of course not! Your Brooks chiropractor takes care of your spine, and you treat your spine! Together, your Brooks chiropractor and you the Brooks back pain sufferer make a great spine care team. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is your local Brooks chiropractic care center where Brooks back pain patients meet their Brooks chiropractor to form a pain relieving treatment plan as well as a plan to prevent future back pain.

A recent high-level research review restates that spinal manipulation is a safe way to relieve back pain in older adults. Soft Health and Healing Clinic values this confirmation! How did they do this? The systematic review of all published articles over a 7 year period updated current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. Conclusively, they reached agreement on current statements about the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They reinforced the present statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for these patients. The panel inserted two supplementary recommendations that (1) chiropractors should suggest exercise to back pain patients who are older and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic concurs! Brooks chiropractic patients frequently seek care that will decrease their back pain. Then, they discover Brooks chiropractic care that does more than just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care encourages them to welcome a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation approach Soft Health and Healing Clinic employs is known as Cox Technic. From the research studies regarding this approach, it is known that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) respond more favorably to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also demonstrated that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – responds better to exercise. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic recognizes that exercise is important to control back pain and prevent future back pain. Soft Health and Healing Clinic urges all our Brooks chiropractic patients to exercise.

Schedule your Brooks chiropractic visit with Soft Health and Healing Clinic to talk about Brooks back pain relief and prevention in older adults with Brooks chiropractic care and appropriate Brooks exercise. Your Brooks chiropractor and you will act as a team as well as recommended spinal manipulation and exercise do to safely and successfully reduce low back pain.
