WHY VISIT YOUR CHIROPRACTOR AFTER THE PAIN IS RELIEVED?
TO KEEP THE RELIEF!
Patients often ask how long they have to visit
for chiropractic care at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic. In the end, their
relief decides this. For some the end of care is decided together, patient and the Fort Wayne chiropractor. For
others, when the pain is better, they quit coming.
The patients decide for themselves. And when there is
no pain, it makes sense to stop
care. Only there may be a special factor to consider:
If back pain is bothersome and prevents you from doing what you want to do, receiving chiropractic care on a
regular basis (sometimes referred to as “maintenance
care”) whether you are hurting or not is beneficial. In a
randomized control trial of 319 such patients, maintenance care reduced
the number of days with pain in acute episodes and improved
the timespan of pain-free days for patients with recurrent and persistent low back pain. (1)
Back pain is not usually cured. It’s like a
bruise on an apple. It won’t simply go
away. The bruise is now a more vulnerable part
of the apple. With back pain, the no-pain period is certainly
pleasant, and continued chiropractic care via a Fort Wayne
chiropractic treatment plan set together can only help prevent
more and/or more painful back pain episodes. Some patients request maintenance care after a few episodes
of Fort Wayne back pain. Some set up a schedule right
away to avoid starting over.
Whichever patient type you are, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is the Fort Wayne chiropractic
care partner for you!
Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise Benefits Before Back Surgery and for Non-Specific
Low Back Pain
A 16-week study of supervised resistance training with varying
low, moderate and high intensity exercise throughout the week helped patients with persistent non-specific
low back pain. How? By improving pain, daily
function and disability, energy level, muscle strength, sleep, and perception
of physical activity as helpful. (2) Those are positive
outcomes! Unfortunately, in the year prior to back
surgery, only 34.8% of back pain patients had physical therapy (PT), 34.1% had
at least one PT visit with exercise, and just 14.6% had
a minimum of 6 exercise therapy visits. 84.4% got
at least one opioid prescription fill with a mean of 6.1 unique fills each. (3)
Conservative, non-drug care including spinal manipulation
and exercise are worthwhile pre-back surgery efforts. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
is prepared to do this with you!
