Regular Vancouver chiropractic care. A helpful
idea? Yep! Consider other good regular care ideas: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings twice a
year to keep plaque away. Cardiologists at the American Heart
Association recommend doing at least 150 minutes of
moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity a week to have
an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 30
minutes a day five days a week to keep the body in tune. Nutritionists
recommend a good diet a day: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to feed the body properly.
Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College
of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2)
Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not
necessarily daily once the pain is under control, but regularly to prevent spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Vancouver Spine Care Centre sees
many Vancouver chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Vancouver
chiropractic patients who choose such care to maintain healthy and pain-free
spines as best they can.
BACK PAIN STATS
80% of us humans will experience at
least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. One in 3 of
us experiences back pain this moment. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
Vancouver Spine Care Centre often informs patients that the existing
episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is begging for care. It won’t
be disregarded. Your spine will be grateful for
a solid treatment plan to get rid of the pain as
well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.
CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS
That is where regular chiropractic care comes
into play. Surely our Vancouver chiropractic patients know
that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know
that they don’t want to suffer with such pain again!
While there is no assurance that back pain or neck pain will
not come back, keeping that pain
at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthy
goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A new study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program found that such chiropractic maintenance
care decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced
activities and increased the number of pain free weeks
between episodes. These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations
of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, doesn’t avert
new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to reduce
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Vancouver back
pain patients, Vancouver Spine Care Centre is here.
Listen to this PODCAST
with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care benefited
his veteran patient contain his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
