Continued Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care Benefits Back Pain Management

Regular Baton Rouge chiropractic care. A good idea? Yes! Consider other helpful regular care concepts: Endocrinologists recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars. Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times annually to keep plaque at bay. Cardiologists at the American Heart Association recommend doing at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity each week to have an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 30 minutes a day five days a week to keep the body in tune.  Nutritionists recommend proper food intake a day: fruits, veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to feed the body properly. Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2) Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not necessarily every day once the pain is under control, but on a regular schedule to prevent spine pain – back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation sees many Baton Rouge chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Baton Rouge chiropractic patients who choose such care to maintain healthy and pain-free spines as best they can.

BACK PAIN STATS

80% of us humans will have no less than one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of us experiences back pain this moment. Back pain is known to come and go not go away forever. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation often informs patients that the existing episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If for no other reason, it is asking for care. It won’t be ignored. Your spine will appreciate an effective treatment plan to get rid of the pain as well as a plan to maintain its mobility and health.

CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS

That’s where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Certainly our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients understand that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand that they do not want to suffer with that pain again! While there is no assurance that back pain or neck pain won’t come back, keeping that pain at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthy goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free and worry free as possible. A new study titled the Nordic Maintenance Care Program reported that such chiropractic maintenance care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that limited activities and boosted the number of pain free weeks between episodes. These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, doesn’t stop new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to decrease life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have recurrent and persistent low back pain.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Joel Dixon  on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes how 20 years of maintenance care helped his veteran patient contain his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
