You have a bout of back pain – first, second, tenth. Do you wonder what that means going forward? Certainly, you are! The trajectory – researchers’ name for the course of back pain – of the Nashua back pain experience is unique to each, but there are issues that may help foretell that course. Moriarty Chiropractic offers some input on the influence of lifestyle and chiropractic care.
WHAT TO DO – Chiropractic
A new article’s findings make seeking chiropractic care logical to impact the course of back pain. Patients who undergo chiropractic care for their chronic (over 3 months) and acute (under a month) low back pain who reported “much better” or “better” at one week of care were 4 to 5 times more likely to report improvement at 1 and 3 months of care. Particularly, acute back pain patients who reported experiencing more severe pain and disability in the beginning of care recovered more quickly. The majority of patients with lumbar radicular leg pain improved. Both chronic and acute back pain patients reported good outcomes. (1) A similar study of the interdisciplinary care (spine surgeons/chiropractors in a university hospital) of chronic back pain patients documented that almost half of the chronic low back pain patients treated with chiropractic conservative care reported clinically relevant improvement. (2) Moriarty Chiropractic sees even better outcomes with our specific form of chiropractic care, Cox® Technic!
WHAT TO DO – More Chiropractic
So why stop chiropractic care with pain relief? A study demonstrated that low back pain patients who underwent chiropractic maintenance care – chiropractic treatments on a regular basis regardless of their symptoms – experienced fewer days of low back pain that limited their activities of daily living compared with getting treatment only when a new low back pain episode arose. (3) More Nashua chiropractic care on a regular basis seems positive.
WHAT TO DO – More Activity
More is not always better, but some kinds of more are better, like chiropractic and activity. A low back pain patient with a lifetime history of back pain may want to try participating in more moderate to vigorous physical activity since it was found to reduce the odds of developing severe low back pain over the following year. (4) Moriarty Chiropractic knows none of us back pain sufferers wants to hear that, but it is the finding of one study. More intense exercise was shown beneficial. Understand too that a sedentary lifestyle – work and/or pleasure time – moderately increases the odds of low back pain. (5) There is a middle ground! Let’s at Moriarty Chiropractic find that with you, the spot that inhibits back pain and allows you to be as active as you want to be.
