Regular Pflugerville chiropractic care. A helpful
idea? Yes! Consider other good regular care ideas: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times annually to keep plaque at bay. Cardiologists at the American Heart
Association recommend performing at least 150 minutes of
moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity a week to have
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 proper food intake a day: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to nourish the body well.
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 daily once the pain is under control, but on a
regular schedule to keep in check spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Pflugerville Wellness Center cares for
many Pflugerville chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Pflugerville
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 at
least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of
us has back pain right now. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
Pflugerville Wellness Center often informs patients that the current
episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is asking for care. It won’t
be disregarded. Your spine will value
an effective treatment plan to get rid of the pain as
well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.
CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS
That is where regular chiropractic care comes
into play. Certainly our Pflugerville chiropractic patients realize
that chiropractic care lessens back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know
that they do not want to suffer with that pain again!
While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain won’t come back, keeping that pain
at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthy
goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A recent study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program found that such chiropractic maintenance
care decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced
activities and improved the number of pain free weeks
between episodes. These outcomes may well help patients and doctors realistically
temper their expectations
of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not prevent
new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to decrease
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Pflugerville back
pain patients, Pflugerville Wellness Center is here.
Listen to this PODCAST
with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care helped
his veteran patient control his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
