WHY SEE YOUR CHIROPRACTOR AFTER THE PAIN IS GONE? TO KEEP IT GONE!
Patients often ask how long they have to come
for chiropractic care at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation. In the end, their
relief decides this. For some the end of care is figured
out together, patient and the Tonawanda chiropractor. For
others, when the pain is gone, they are gone.
The patients make the decision themselves. And when there is
no pain, it makes sense to quit coming. Only there may be a special factor to consider:
If back pain is bothersome and prevents you from doing the
things you want to do, receiving chiropractic care on a
regular basis (sometimes referred to as “maintenance
care”) whether you are hurting or not is beneficial. In a
randomized control trial of 319 such patients, maintenance care reduced
the number of painful day in acute episodes and increased
the duration of pain-free days for back pain
sufferers who have with recurrent and persistent low back pain. (1)
Back pain is not often cured. It is like a
bruise on an apple. It won’t simply go
away. The bruise is now a more susceptible part
of the apple. With back pain, the no-pain period is surely
pleasant, and continued chiropractic care via a Tonawanda
chiropractic treatment plan set together can only help prevent
more and/or more painful back pain episodes. Some patients ask
for maintenance care after suffering with several episodes
of Tonawanda back pain. Some schedule right
away to avoid waiting for the pain and having to begin again.
Whichever patient type you are, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is the Tonawanda chiropractic
care partner for you!
Tonawanda CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise Benefits Before Back Surgery and for Non-Specific
Low Back Pain
A 16-week study of supervised resistance training with varying
low, moderate and high intensity exercise throughout the week helped patients with persistent non-specific
low back pain. How? By making better pain, daily
function and disability, energy level, muscle strength, sleep, and perception
of physical activity as helpful. (2) Those are encouraging
outcomes! Unfortunately, in the year prior to back
surgery, only 34.8% of back pain patients had physical therapy (PT), 34.1% had
at least one PT visit with exercise, and just 14.6% experienced
a minimum of 6 exercise therapy visits. 84.4% received
at least one opioid prescription fill with a mean of 6.1 unique fills each. (3)
Conservative, non-drug care including spinal manipulation
and exercise are worthwhile pre-back surgery efforts. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
is prepared to do this with you!
