"Why do I need continued chiropractic
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Baton Rouge chiropractor,
just treat it and put a stop to the pain altogether so it doesn't come back?"
This is not a bizarre
question, and it's also very
reasonable. The answer is fairly
understandable, too, though dual: we are born with spine-pain
issues or we develop them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with spinal weaknesses that will
be with us forever. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are unique to one's
own spine. There is no way to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is ours. So we must learn how to respect our spines so as to not trigger
pain. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Spine & Sports Rehab Center can perform
the spinal manipulation intended to alleviate
your specific spinal condition. Then, you will want to think
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You don't want to compromise your now-pain-relieved
spine further or again.
- nutritional needs - Spine & Sports Rehab Center will suggest
some nutrition ideas to bolster
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening prerequisites - Our simple exercises don't take long but will
take you and your spine far in preserving its strength!
It is in these continued spine problems that
we - you and your Baton Rouge chiropractor - must
partner for the greatest
outcome, even coming in for occasional spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us injure our backs. We do
things that damage the seemingly healthiest
of spines: falling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting excess weight. You get the idea - things
we do in everyday activities of daily living may harm
us, and we wind up with back pain. So, when we damage the spine to the
level that we cause intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now will contend
with a spinal weakness which may become the weak link
in our spinal health.
We all must nurture a strong,
well-aligned spine and utilize the spine with the respect and knowledge of
dodging those activities
that could cause it pain.
How? You and your Baton Rouge chiropractor see
each other on occasion.
A periodic visit to Spine & Sports Rehab Center for spinal alignment
and assessment of healthy spine maintenance is good. Post-continued
spinal manipulation after the original
pain-relieving care is even described as a way to obtain
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is far better than
having to go through repetitive treatment of Baton Rouge
back pain. It averts pain and suffering in this moment and reduces the risk of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A new report reflected on the
reality of low back pain being a major cause of disability globally. It is persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not known to just go away and
never return. Luckily, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been reported as
effective in reducing painful days for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was recorded to be
of high value described such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment concerned
others. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain diminishes.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is not
fun. Aid is possible with
Spine & Sports Rehab Center. Just understand that there is a logical need
and even benefit for periodic spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine conditions.
