Fort Wayne Back Pain Relief Includes Self-Management

“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 makes a difference. It may well alter your life for the better. Many Fort Wayne chiropractic patients have experienced this.

SELF-MANAGEMENT BENEFITS

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.

SELF-MANAGEMENT APP

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!
