Baton Rouge Back Pain Care and Exercise Guidelines

January 31, 2024

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 boost the healing of Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a primary part of back pain prevention alongside management that all providers encourage and all providers are concerned aren’t always carried out. Chiropractors like your own at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers are health promoters and work to do that in the kindest, most caring way! Let us work together to get you better.


Quality in healthcare delivery is discussed a lot. Providers and patients desire the highest quality care possible in delivering care and receiving care. Interprofessional collaboration rises to the top when researchers evaluate 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 worries and enhanced clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity certainly is a part of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Baton Rouge pain relief.


In a recent survey, chiropractors reported that the biggest concern they held in managing back pain patients was patient follow through (exercises, appointments, at-home instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors stated that they were optimistic about healthier patient lifestyles. These chiropractors also shared that they were actively engaged in promoting physical activity, suggesting exercises to patients for their particular issue, asking how the exercises are going, and counseling patients in the proper way to do exercises as well as benefit that comes from exercising. (4) One way that patients seem to respond more positively and be more willing to do physical activity is the use of a mobile application. Such apps help handle 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 helpful.


Core stabilization exercises are commonly recommended to back pain patients. A new study that incorporated diaphragmatic breathing exercises noted many benefits for chronic low back pain patients: improved muscle activity, chest expansion, quality of sleep, enhanced disability and physical activity and pain scores, reduced fear avoidance, and better physical activity, and more. (6) As a part of your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers feels a duty to promote physical activity so that you can manage your own health a bit more. Our younger back pain and neck pain sufferers benefit. Our older adults who have aches and pains and/or Baton Rouge back pain and/or neck pain benefit, too!
