The Value of Colorado Springs Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you envision that? Do you embrace it? What are healthy living behaviors? The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is all for healthy living. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Colorado Springs chiropractic patients can trust their Colorado Springs chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them cope with exisiting spine pain issues but also ward off future bouts of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best prevented.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Non-smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, don’t they? A recent study proved that men who took advantage of more of these healthy choices had lower risk of long duration low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Eating fruit and vegetables is another favorable healthy behavior. This plus the other behaviors are shown to reduce the risk of developing long term troubling low back pain in women and even potentially better the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Participating in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Using a lumbar support belt increases postural control when standing on unstable ground.  This may be especially welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unstable. (4) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR works with our Colorado Springs back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues encourages more healthy behaviors. When patients are given the opportunity to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were less than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access makes a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief reports that their familiarity with the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, how close they were to the doctor’s office, and credentials of the doctor prompted their choice.
