The Value of Baton Rouge Healthy Living

November 21, 2017

Healthy living. How do you describe that? Do you embrace it? Do you know what behaviors are healthy? Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is all about healthy living. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Baton Rouge chiropractic patients can believe their Baton Rouge chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them cope with current spine pain issues but also avent future bouts of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best prevented.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Non-smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, don’t they? A recent study proved that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had decreased possibility of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is an additional positive healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors appeared to reduce the risk of having long term troubling low back pain in women and even potentially better the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Taking part in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Wearing a lumbar support belt improves postural control when standing on unstable ground.  This may be particularly welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unsteady. (4) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers works with our Baton Rouge back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues encourages more healthy behaviors. When patients are able to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were less than if they sought care from their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access results in a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief shows that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network endorsements, geographical proximity, and doctor’s qualifications influenced their choice.
