Aaron Chiropractic Clinic Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

Quality of life. That is the key factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is grateful to work with Fort Wayne chiropractic patients to enhance their chances of aging well and relishing the best quality of life possible. Fort Wayne back pain patients understand that knowing what factors might adversely affect their quality of life and their options to diminish the influence of those factors.

FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE

Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis, disc degeneration and related back pain decrease quality of life. These conditions often happen in mid-life and older life, rendering life not very enjoyable. Researchers found factors that seem to decrease the odds of getting these conditions. What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Good spinal alignment. Greater back muscle strength. No issue with locomotion syndrome – difficulty moving from one position to another, one place to another. Stable body balance. With such good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can enjoy a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are notoriously key factors in motor control functions like balance, efforts to strengthen these specifically are critical to attempt to turn around such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is often a part of the chiropractic treatment plan for Fort Wayne back pain patients. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows that back pain sufferers have many healthcare forms of care from which to choose and shares what the researchers say about the options.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

To benefit most out of an option, the circumstances must be optimal.  Back surgery may not always be the choice option for every Fort Wayne back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery doesn’t always produce fully the desired outcome, particularly for patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability that come with it lingered for 29% to 42% of patients who supposedly had little to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain recommend non-surgical options like spinal manipulation as the first step. Chiropractic care incorporates spinal manipulation. Chiropractic care at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is all about Cox® Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to achieve the sought after pain reduction outcome.

Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES

Chiropractic researchers are presently studying the specific effects of chiropractic care’s spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance better outcomes in patients with low back pain, especially active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were related to back pain. (4) Low back pain is a frequent reason for disability in the military. Given that military personnel are people like the rest of us, this study’s results will be interesting! Another study that added chiropractic - spinal manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic approaches such as rehabilitative exercise, cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – improved short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty military. (5) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic gathers these helpful studies to share with our Fort Wayne back pain patients.
