"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 spondylolisthesis, transitional 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 perform
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 disc, arthritis, 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 no
fun. 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.
