Continued Vancouver Chiropractic Care Benefits Back Pain Management

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 have no less than 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.
