Baton Rouge Back Pain Relief Includes Self-Management

“Just give me something to stop the pain.” or “Just do something so I don’t hurt.” are just two comments Spine & Sports Rehab Center and fellow back pain healthcare practitioners hear all the time. When in pain, we all just want it to stop in the easiest and quickest way possible. This isn’t always possible though. We all have to look at our pain and make friends with it to some extent. We can see it for what it is. Temporary. Unwelcome. Disruptive. But manageable many times when engaged. Spine & Sports Rehab Center urges our Baton Rouge back pain patients and neck pain patients to participate in their back pain relief process. It makes a difference. It may perhaps even change your life for the better. Many Baton Rouge chiropractic patients have lived this.

SELF-MANAGEMENT BENEFITS

Amazingly up to 25% of back pain patients in a new study were not actively engaged in their spine care treatment plan. Research is filled with studies highlighting the significance of patient-involvement in treatment of spine pain. What kept such patients involved? In researcher-ease, environmental context and resources, emotion, memory/attention/decision-making, and behavioural regulation did. Knowing that these things were the interfering culprits that interfered with patients’ participation in their own care, researchers created a special plan to deal with these issues and raise the patients’ understanding and participation via text reminders, exercises, lifestyle changes, webinars, videos, paper educational materials and more. (1) One study found that a variety of approaches to lessen disability and work absenteeism was cost effective though no one particular intervention stood out over others. (2) Like these researchers, Spine & Sports Rehab Center tries to do whatever it takes to help our Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain patients!

SPINE EXERCISES AND EMS

This may be a unique helpful intervention for certain patients: whole-body electromyostimulation. It reduced nonspecific chronic low back pain equally as well as back-strengthening exercise protocols. When fear of movement and functional limitations due to back pain play a role, whole body electrical stimulation helped fearful patients with their strength and stabilization in good time, reducing pain intensity and improving trunk flexors. (3) Spine & Sports Rehab Center shares such alternatives to help our patients.

From this research data, researchers plan to fill the app with tips and exercises that have worked for others experiencing similar issues. Each patient’s app will then be personalized for self-management of back pain and other musculoskeletal issues based upon others with similar conditions reported helpful and relieving.
