BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
Suggestions and recommendations run the gamut.
Pflugerville Wellness Center hears about them all the time. Everyone from
friends, family members, researchers, doctors, etc., have ideas
and stories. In light of the variability of back
pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization
of care for back pain - exercise, spinal manipulation and
opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers
most favorably. (1) We concur. We review
the research and mix it with our clinical experience to develop an individualized treatment
plan for our back pain patients. With the predicted growth of low
back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people globally
to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug,
non-surgical choices for back pain are welcome, particularly
ones that are tested and documented to be beneficial. A a recently published paper regarding
the care for one type of back pain - continued back pain after
back surgery known as failed back surgery syndrome
(FBSS) - that often develops into continued or increased opioid
pain medication use. The study stated
that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression
Manipulation reported reduction or discontinuation of opioid use during an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That’s an
encouraging outcome of a treatment approach to include in the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!
So what can our Pflugerville chiropractic patients do
to control their back pain and its effect on their lives?
Sleep. Keep active. Makes their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain
sufferers noted that additional sleep, less sedentariness,
and increased moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was
beneficial. The authors shared an example of how swapping 30
minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep lowered
low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is important!
(4) So too is a visit to the Pflugerville chiropractor for spinal
manipulation as recommended in the guidelines published
by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having
good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain together with
exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Pflugerville Wellness Center is experienced in delivering
gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, creating
an easy exercise plan, and recommending
therapy and/or more advance rehab as necessary or desired.
