You have a bout of back pain – first,
second, tenth. Do you wonder what that means going
forward? Certainly, you are! The trajectory – researchers’ term
for the course of back pain – of the Fort Wayne back pain
experience is unique to each, but there are issues
that may help forecast that course. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc offers
a few ideas on the influence of lifestyle and
WHAT TO DO – Chiropractic
A new article’s findings make seeking chiropractic care
logical to contain the course of back pain. Patients
undergoing chiropractic care for their chronic (more
than 3 months) and acute (less than 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 30 days and 90 days of care.
More specifically, acute back pain patients who reported experiencing
more severe pain and disability at the start of care
recovered faster. Most
patients with lumbar radicular leg pain improved. Both acute
and chronic 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 recorded
that almost half of the chronic low back pain patients treated with
chiropractic conservative care reported clinically relevant improvement. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc
sees even better outcomes with our particular form
of chiropractic care, Cox® Technic!
WHAT TO DO – More Chiropractic
A question arises: why halt chiropractic
care with pain relief? Researchers documented that
low back pain patients who have 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 Fort Wayne
chiropractic care on a regular basis seems positive.
WHAT TO DO – More Activity
More is not always better, but some types of
more are better, like chiropractic and activity. A low back pain patient
with a lifetime history of back pain may want to consider engaging
in more moderate to vigorous physical activity since it
was shown to lower the odds of extending
severe low back pain over the next year. (4) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows
none of us back pain sufferers enjoys hearing that,
but it’s the finding of a study. More intense exercise
was shown beneficial. Know too that a sedentary lifestyle –
work and/or pleasure time – moderately raises the odds
of low back pain. (5) There is a middle ground! Let us at
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc discover that with you, the spot that prevents
back pain and keeps you active as you want to be.
