"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.
