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 issues 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.
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 improvement 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.
