Continued Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain Management

Regular Baton Rouge chiropractic care. A helpful idea? Yep! Consider other good regular care ideas: Endocrinologists recommend that diabetics regularly monitor their blood sugars. Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings twice a year to keep plaque away. Cardiologists at the American Heart Association recommend doing at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity each week to make an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 30 minutes a day five days a week to maintain optimal health for the body.  Nutritionists recommend a good diet daily: fruits, veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to feed the body well. Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2) Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not necessarily daily once the pain is under control, but on a regular schedule to prevent spine pain – back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Spine & Sports Rehab Center sees many Baton Rouge chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Baton Rouge chiropractic patients who choose such care to keep their spines as healthy and pain-free as possible.

BACK PAIN STATS

80% of us humans will experience at least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of us has back pain this moment. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities. Spine & Sports Rehab Center often tells patients that the existing episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If for no other reason, it is asking for care. It won’t be disregarded. Your spine will be grateful for a solid treatment plan to get rid of the pain as well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.

CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS

That’s where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Certainly our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients understand that chiropractic care alleviates back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand that they do not want to suffer with that pain again! While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain won’t come back, keeping that pain at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free and worry free as possible. A new study called the Nordic Maintenance Care Program reported that such chiropractic maintenance care decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that restrained activities and improved the number of pain free weeks between episodes. These outcomes may well help patients and doctors realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not prevent new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to decrease life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with recurrent and persistent low back pain.
