"Why do I need continued chiropractic
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Tonawanda chiropractor,
just treat it and put a stop to the pain altogether so it doesn't come back?"
This is not a bizarre
question, and it's also really
perceptive. The answer is logically
simple, too, though two-fold: we are born with spine-pain
issues or we acquire them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with spinal weaknesses that will
be with us all life through. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are unique to one's
own spine. There is no path to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is our own. So we must learn how to respect our spines so as to not cause
pain. Your Tonawanda chiropractor at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation can perform
the spinal manipulation intended to ease
your specific spinal condition. Then, you'll want to think
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You don't want to put
your now-pain-relieved spine in jeopardy again.
- nutritional needs - Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation will suggest
some nutrition ideas to bolster
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening requirements - Our simple exercises do not take long but will
take you and your spine far in preserving its strength!
It is in these on-going spine problems that
we - you and your Tonawanda chiropractor - must
partner for the best
outcome, even coming in for occasional spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us injure our backs. We do
things that hurt the best
of spines: falling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting too much weight. You get the idea - things
we do in everyday activities of daily living may injure
us, and we end up with back pain. So, when we damage the spine to the
extent that we trigger intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now have a spinal weakness which may become the weak link
in our spinal health.
We all must maintain a strong,
well-aligned spine and utilize the spine with the respect and knowledge of
staying away from those activities
that could trigger pain.
How? You and your Tonawanda chiropractor see
each other on occasion.
A periodic visit to Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation for spinal alignment
and assessment of healthy spine maintenance is helpful. Post-continued
spinal manipulation after the initial
pain-relieving care is even proposed as a way to obtain
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is much better than
having to go through repetitive treatment of Tonawanda
back pain. It averts pain and suffering in this moment and reduces the risk of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A new report reflected on the
reality of low back pain being a major reason for disability around
the world. It is persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not common that it just goes away and never returns. Luckily, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been found to be
effective in reducing the number of days of pain for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was recorded to be
of high value saw such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment worried
others. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain decreases.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is disruptive. Alleviation of your pain is possible with
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation. Just understand that there is a logical necessity
and even benefit for periodic spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine problems.
