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.
GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
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.
BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN
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.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
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!
