Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

Quality of life. That’s the central factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is honored to work with Tonawanda chiropractic patients to enhance their chances of aging well and relishing the best quality of life possible. Tonawanda back pain patients understand that knowing what factors might adversely affect their quality of life and their options to lessen 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 lower quality of life. These conditions often happen in mid-life and older life, rendering life not very enjoyable. Researchers found factors that seem to reduce the odds of acquiring these conditions. What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Good spinal alignment. Greater back muscle strength. No trouble with locomotion syndrome – trouble with moving from one position to another, one place to another. Good body balance. With all of these 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 important to try to reverse such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is manytimes a part of the chiropractic treatment plan for Tonawanda back pain patients. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation knows that back pain sufferers have many options of care from which to choose and shares what the researchers say about such options.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

To get the most out of an option, the circumstances must be optimal.  Back surgery may not always be the best option for every Tonawanda 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 experienced little to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain propose non-surgical options like spinal manipulation as the first step. Chiropractic care incorporates spinal manipulation. Chiropractic care at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation incorporates Cox® Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to achieve the sought after pain reduction outcome.

Tonawanda 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, particularly active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were associated with 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! In another study, the addition of chiropractic care - spinal manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic procedures such as rehabilitative exercise, cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – enhanced short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty military. (5) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation collects these helpful studies to share with our Tonawanda back pain patients.
