How Long Do I Have to See The Chiropractor?

"Why do I need continued chiropractic treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Colorado Springs chiropractor, just treat it and end the pain forever?"

This is not a bizarre question, and it's also quite sensible. The answer is fairly simple, too, though two-fold: we are born with spine-pain issues or we acquire them.

BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN

Some of us are born with spinal weaknesses that will be with us forever. Such conditions as spondylolisthesistransitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are unique to one's own spine. There is no path to "get a new back bone" if one of these conditions is our own. So we must figure out how to use our spines so as to not trigger pain. Your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR can deliver the spinal manipulation intended to relieve your specific spinal condition. Then, you'll 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 - The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR will share some nutrition ideas to improve certain weaknesses of the spine.
  • strengthening requirements - Our simple exercises do not take long but will take you and your spine far in keeping it strong!

It is in these on-going spine problems that we - you and your Colorado Springs chiropractor - must partner for the most welcome outcome, even coming in for periodic spinal manipulation. (1)

LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN

Some of us injure our backs. We do things that hurt the best of spines: tumbling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or lifting too much weight. You get the idea - things we do in everyday activities of daily living may harm us, and we wind up with back pain. So, when we hurt the spine to the level that we trigger intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated discarthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now have a spinal weakness which may become the vulnerable link in our spinal health.

We all must nurture a strong, well-aligned spine and utilize the spine with the respect and knowledge of staying away from those activities that could cause it pain.

How? You and your Colorado Springs chiropractor see each other occasionally. An occasional visit to The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR for spinal alignment and assessment of healthy spine maintenance is good. Post-continued spinal manipulation after the initial pain-relieving care is even proposed as a way to maintain long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is far better than having to go through repetitive treatment of Colorado Springs back pain. It averts pain and suffering in this moment and reduces the chance of further spine pain in the future.

PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC

A new report reflected on the reality of low back pain being a major reason for disability around the world. It’s persistent or recurrent for many people. It is not known to just go away and never return. Fortunately, chiropractic maintenance care or management treatment plan has been reported as effective in reducing the number of days of pain for some sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was reported to be of high value viewed such care as “patient-centered” while cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment concerned others. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR strives to address all of these concerns which often go away as the back pain decreases.

Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is disruptive. Relief is possible with The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR. Just understand that there is a logical necessity and even benefit for occasional spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine problems. (1)
