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.
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.
