Regular Colorado Springs chiropractic care. A good
idea? Yes! Consider other good regular care concepts: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly monitor their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times a
year to keep plaque away. Cardiologists at the American Heart
Association recommend performing at least 150 minutes of
moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity a week to make
an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 30
minutes a day five days a week to maintain
optimal health for the body. Nutritionists
recommend a good diet a day: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to nourish 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 regularly to prevent spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR treats
many Colorado Springs chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Colorado Springs
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. One in 3 of
us has back pain right now. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR often advises patients that the existing
episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is begging for care. It won’t
be disregarded. Your spine will welcome
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. Surely our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients understand
that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know
that they don’t want to suffer with such pain again!
While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain will
not come back, keeping that pain
at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile
goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A new study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program stated that such chiropractic maintenance
care decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that restrained
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 avert
new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to decrease
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Colorado Springs back
pain patients, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 live
his life the way he wants to live it.
