You experience a bout of back pain – first,
second, tenth. Do you wonder what that means going
forward? Certainly, you are! The trajectory – researchers’ term
for the course of back pain – of the Fort Wayne back pain
experience is individual to each, but there are issues
that may help forecast that course. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic shares
some input on the effect of lifestyle and
WHAT TO DO – Chiropractic
A new article’s findings make seeking chiropractic care
logical to influence the path of back pain. Patients
who undergo chiropractic care for their chronic (over 3 months) and acute (under a month) low back pain who
reported “much better” or “better” at one week of care were 4 to 5 times more
likely to report improvement at 30 days and 90 days of care.
Particularly, acute back pain patients who reported having
more severe pain and disability at the start of care
recovered quicker. The majority of
patients with lumbar radicular leg pain bettered. Both acute
and chronic back pain patients reported good outcomes. (1)
Another study of the interdisciplinary care (spine
surgeons/chiropractors in a university hospital) of chronic back pain patients documented
that almost half of the chronic low back pain patients cared with
chiropractic conservative care reported clinically relevant improvement. (2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
sees even better outcomes with our specific form
of chiropractic care, Cox® Technic!
WHAT TO DO – More Chiropractic
A question arises: why halt chiropractic
care with pain relief? A study demonstrated that
low back pain patients who experienced chiropractic maintenance
care – chiropractic treatments on a regular basis unrelated to whether they
had symptoms – experienced fewer
days of low back pain that limited their activities of daily living contrasted
with getting treatment only when a new low back pain episode arose. (3) More Fort Wayne
chiropractic care on a regular basis looks beneficial.
WHAT TO DO – More Activity
More is not always better, but some types of
more are better, like chiropractic and activity. A low back pain patient
with a lifetime history of back pain may want to try engaging
in higher volumes of moderate to vigorous physical activity since it
was shown to lower the odds of developing
severe low back pain over the following year. (4) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows
none of us back pain sufferers wants to hear that,
but it’s the finding of a study. More intense exercise
was shown beneficial. Understand too that a sedentary lifestyle –
work and/or pleasure time – moderately raises the odds
of low back pain. (5) There is a middle ground! Let’s at
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic uncover that with you, the spot that prevents
back pain and keeps you active as you want to be.
