Quality of life. That’s the key
factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest.
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center is privileged to work with
Fort Wayne chiropractic patients to increase their odds
of aging well and enjoying the best quality of life
possible. Fort Wayne back pain patients understand
that knowing what factors might adversely impact
their quality of life and their options to lessen the
influence of those factors.
FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE
Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis,
disc degeneration and related back pain lower
quality of life. These conditions often arise in mid-life and
older life, making life not very pleasant.
Researchers reported on factors that seem to reduce
the odds of acquiring these conditions.
What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Fine spinal alignment.
Greater back muscle strength. No issue with locomotion syndrome –
difficulty switching positions. Stable body balance. With such good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can expect
a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are notoriously important factors in motor control functions
like balance, attempts to strengthen these particularly
are important to try to reverse
such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is manytimes a part
of the chiropractic treatment plan for Fort Wayne back pain patients.
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center knows that back pain sufferers have many healthcare
forms of care from which to pick and shares what the
researchers say about the options.
To benefit most out of an option, the
circumstances must be optimal. Back
surgery may not always be the best option for every Fort Wayne
back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery doesn’t always produce
fully the desired outcome, especially for
patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability
that come with it lingered for 29% to 42%
of patients who supposedly experienced minimal
to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain recommend
non-surgical options like spinal manipulation first.
Chiropractic care is all about spinal manipulation.
Chiropractic care at Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center incorporates Cox®
Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to achieve
the sought after pain reduction outcome.
Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES
Chiropractic researchers are presently looking
into the particular effects of chiropractic care’s
spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance better
outcomes in patients with low back pain, especially
active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were related to back pain. (4) Low back pain is a frequent
reason for disability in the military. Seeing as
how military personnel are people like us all, this
study’s results will be interesting! Another study that added
chiropractic - spinal
manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic
procedures like rehabilitative exercise,
cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical
care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – enhanced
short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty
military. (5) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center gathers these helpful
studies to share with our Fort Wayne back pain patients.
