Guidelines. There are guidelines for everything!
This post talks about some of the newer
guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other
healthcare providers to enhance the healing of Pflugerville back
pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a primary part of back
pain prevention alongside management that all providers support
and all providers are worried aren’t
always carried out. Chiropractors like your own
at Pflugerville Wellness Center are health promoters and work to do that in the kindest,
most supportive way! Let’s work
together to get you better.
GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Quality in healthcare delivery is discussed a lot. Providers and
patients want the highest quality care possible in
delivering care and receiving care. Interprofessional
collaboration is on the top of the list when researchers
assess systems for the care of back pain like proper
use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also assembled 70 quality markers for chiropractic
delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take
into consideration patient concerns and higher
clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity certainly is a component
of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Pflugerville pain relief.
BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN
In a recent survey, chiropractors expressed
that the biggest concern they held in treating back
pain patients was patient follow through (exercises, appointments, at-home recommendations,
etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors reported
that they were optimistic about healthier patient
lifestyles. These chiropractors also shared that they were actively
involved in promoting physical activity, suggesting
exercises to patients for their particular issue, asking
how the exercises are going, and counseling patients in the
proper manner to do exercises as well as value of doing
exercises. (4) One way that patients seem
to follow through more positively and be more willing to do
physical activity is using a mobile app. Such
apps help manage low back and neck pain patients when they
are built around reported pain, pain intensity, and structure of the app like audio
explanation and animation of each exercise. (5) Doing the right exercises in the right way is the most effective.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
Core stabilization exercises are commonly
recommended to back pain patients. One new study that incorporated diaphragmatic breathing exercises recorded many advantages
for chronic low back pain patients: enhanced muscle activity, chest
expansion, quality of sleep, enhanced disability and physical activity
and pain scores, decreased fear avoidance, and increased
physical activity, and more. (6) As a part of
your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Pflugerville Wellness Center feels a duty
to encourage physical activity so that you can take care of you. Our younger back pain and neck pain sufferers benefit.
Our older adults with aches and pains and/or Pflugerville back
pain and/or neck pain benefit, too!
