Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers Shares Your 2024 Goal of Relief of Back Pain

December 26, 2023

A new goal for the new goal. We all aim for something new in a new year. For Baton Rouge back pain sufferers, a decrease in back pain is a logical goal with Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers by your side. Back pain sufferers are certainly not alone, and research keeps producing and publishing hopeful reports of what works so that both the back pain sufferer and the chiropractor - as well as other involved healthcare providers – deliver the optimal care for the optimal outcome: less back pain. Start 2024 off right with Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers’s assistance for back pain relief! We have lots of effective chiropractic services


Suggestions and recommendations run the gamut. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers knows. Everyone from friends, family members, researchers, doctors, etc., have ideas and stories. In light of the inconsistency of back pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization of back pain care - exercise, spinal manipulation and opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers most favorably. (1) We agree. We read the research and mix it with our experience when developing a personalized treatment plan for our back pain patients. With the expected growth of low back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people around the world to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug, non-surgical choices for back pain are welcome, especially ones that are tested and documented to be beneficial.  A a newly published paper regarding the care for one type of back pain - continued back pain after back surgery also called failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) - that often develops into continued or increased opioid pain medication use.  The study found that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression Manipulation experienced 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 incorporate into the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!


So what can our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients do to limit their back pain and its impact on their lives? Sleep. Keep active. Undergo spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain sufferers listed that additional sleep, less sedentariness, and more 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 Baton Rouge chiropractor for spinal manipulation as it is listed in the recommendations 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) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is experienced in providing gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, creating an easy exercise plan, and recommending therapy and/or more advance rehab as needed or wanted. Trust us to help! Our Baton Rouge back pain patients are in good hands.
