How Long Do I Have to See The Chiropractor?01/11/2022"Why do I need continued chiropractic treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Fort Wayne chiropractor, just treat it and end the pain forever?" This is not an unexpected question, and it's also very logical. The answer is fairly understandable, too, though two-fold: we are born with spinal issues or we acquire them. BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN Some of us are born with spinal conditions that will be with us forever. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are distinctive to one's own spine. There is no route to "get a new back bone" if one of these conditions is ours. So we must figure out how to use our spines so as to not cause pain. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc can deliver the spinal manipulation designed to ease your specific spinal condition. Then, you will want to consider its proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit, stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You do not want to compromise your now-pain-relieved spine further or again.nutritional needs - Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc will share some nutrition ideas to improve certain weaknesses of the spine.strengthening prerequisites - Our simple exercises don't take long but will take you and your spine far in preserving its strength! It is in these continued spine problems that we - you and your Fort Wayne chiropractor - must collaborate for the greatest outcome, even coming in for occasional spinal manipulation. (1) LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN Some of us injure our backs. We do things that hurt the seemingly healthiest of spines: tumbling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or lifting too much weight. You get the picture - things we do in everyday activities of daily living may hurt us, and we end up with back pain. So, when we damage the spine to the extent that we trigger intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now will contend with a spinal weakness which may become the weak link in our spinal health. We all must keep up a strong, well-aligned spine and utilize the spine with the respect and knowledge of staying away from those settings that could trigger pain. How? You and your Fort Wayne chiropractor see each other occasionally. A recurring visit to Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc for spinal alignment and review of healthy spine maintenance is good. Post-continued spinal manipulation after the original pain-relieving care is even proposed as a way to maintain long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is much better than having to go through repeated treatment of Fort Wayne back pain. It averts pain and suffering in the present and decreases the risk of further spine pain in the future. PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC A recent report described the reality of low back pain being a major reason for disability globally. It’s persistent or recurrent for many people. It is not common that it just goes away and never returns. Luckily, chiropractic maintenance care or management treatment plan has been found to be effective in reducing painful days for some sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was reported to be of high value saw such care as “patient-centered” while cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment worried others. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc strives to address all of these concerns which often go away as the back pain diminishes. Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is disruptive. Remedy is possible with Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. Just understand that there is a logical necessity and even benefit for periodic spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine problems.
