The Value of Nashua Healthy Living

November 21, 2017

Healthy living. How do you describe that? Do you live it? What are healthy living behaviors? Moriarty Chiropractic is all for healthy living. Moriarty Chiropractic sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Nashua chiropractic patients can expect their Nashua chiropractor to be an escort to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them cope with exisiting spine pain issues but also avent future episodes of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best avoided.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those sound about right, don’t they? A recent study described that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had lower risk of long duration low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is an additional favorable healthy behavior. This plus the other behaviors appeared to lessen the possibility of developing long term upsetting low back pain in women and even potentially better the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Participating in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program improves the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Utilizing a lumbar support belt increases postural control when standing on unlevel ground.  This may be particularly welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unstable. (4) Moriarty Chiropractic works with our Nashua back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues encourages more healthy behaviors. When patients are able to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were lower than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access makes a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief found that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, how close they were to the doctor’s office, and credentials of the doctor motivated their choice.
