“Just give me something to stop the pain.” or “Just do something
so I stop hurting.” are just two comments Aaron Chiropractic Clinic and
fellow back pain healthcare practitioners hear frequently. When in pain, we all just want it to stop in the simplest and fastest way possible. This isn’t
always possible though. We all need to look at our pain and make
friends with it to some extent. We can see it for what it is.
Temporary. Unwelcome. Disruptive. But manageable many times when engaged. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic urges
our Fort Wayne back pain patients and neck pain patients to take
part in their back pain relief process. It can make
a difference. It may well alter your life for
the better. Many Fort Wayne chiropractic patients have experienced this.
Remarkably up to 25% of back pain patients in
a new study weren’t actively engaged in their
spine care treatment plan. Research is filled with studies
emphasizing the significance of patient-engagement
with treatment of spine pain. What kept such patients involved?
In researcher-ease, environmental context and resources, emotion, memory/attention/decision-making,
and behavioural regulation did. Knowing that these things were the
interfering culprits that interfered with
patients’ participation in their own care, researchers created a distinctive
plan to address these issues and increase
the patients’ understanding and participation via text reminders, exercises,
lifestyle changes, webinars, videos, paper educational materials and more. (1) One
study discovered that a variety of approaches to lessen
disability and work absenteeism was cost effective though no one certain
intervention stood out over others. (2) Like these researchers, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
tries to do anything possible to help our Fort Wayne
back pain and neck pain patients!
SPINE EXERCISES AND EMS
This may be a unique helpful intervention for certain
patients: whole-body electromyostimulation. It reduced
nonspecific chronic low back pain equally as well as back-strengthening
exercise protocols. When fear of movement and functional limitations because
of back pain are a part of the problem, whole body
electrical stimulation improved patients’
strength and stabilization in good time, dropping
pain intensity and improving trunk flexors. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
shares such options to help our patients.
Ever heard the saying “There’s
an app for that!”? Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is certain you have! Not
alarming in today’s app-crazy world that there is an app in development to help you manage self-management
tasks like exercise, sleep, etc. For the “selfBACK” app, researchers are now
gathering data on the effectiveness of
various interventions at baseline, 6 weeks, 3, 6, and 9 months
for nonspecific low back pain. From this data collection,
researchers plan to fill the app with tips and exercises that have
benefited others experiencing similar issues. Each
patient’s app will then be tailored for
self-management of back pain and other musculoskeletal issues based upon others with similar conditions reported helpful and
relieving. (4) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic looks forward to saying “There is an app for
that!" Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows that some of our Fort Wayne back pain
patients will love this!
