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 comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
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. (3) For these Baton Rouge back
pain patients, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is here.
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.
