Continued Pflugerville Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain Management

Regular Pflugerville chiropractic care. A helpful idea? Yes! Consider other helpful 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.

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.
