Baton Rouge Back Pain Care and Exercise Guidelines

Guidelines. There are guidelines for everything! This post talks about some of the more recent 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 core part of back pain prevention as well as management that all providers encourage and all providers are concerned are not always done. Chiropractors like your own at Spine & Sports Rehab Center are health promoters and work to do that in the kindest, most caring way! Let’s work together to get you better.


Quality in healthcare delivery is talked about so much. Providers and patients want 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 put together 70 quality markers for chiropractic delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take into consideration patient worries and higher 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 said that the biggest concern they held in managing back pain patients was patient follow through (exercises, appointments, at-home recommendations, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors stated that they had a positive opinion about healthier patient lifestyles. These chiropractors also shared that they were actively involved in promoting physical activity, suggesting exercises to patients for their particular issue, inquiring how the exercises are going, and advising patients in the proper technique to do exercises as well as benefit that comes from exercising. (4) One way that patients seem to follow through more positively and be more willing to do physical activity is using a mobile app. Apps that are build built around reported pain, pain intensity, and app features like audio explanation and animation of each exercise are well received. (5)  Doing the right exercises in the right way typically brings about the rightfully desired outcome.


Core stabilization exercises are usually recommended to back pain patients. One new study that incorporated diaphragmatic breathing exercises noted many advantages for chronic low back pain patients: improved muscle activity, chest expansion, quality of sleep, enhanced disability and physical activity and pain scores, decreased fear avoidance, and increased physical activity, among others. (6) As a part of your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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!
