Continued Colorado Springs Chiropractic Care Benefits Back Pain Management

Regular Colorado Springs chiropractic care. A helpful 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.

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.
