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 Williamson back
pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a core part of back
pain prevention as well as management that all providers support
and all providers are concerned are not
always executed. Chiropractors like your own
at Apple Country Chiropractic are health promoters and work to do that in the nicest,
most supportive way! Let’s work
together to get you better.
GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Everything in healthcare is about quality. Providers and
patients desire the best quality care possible in
delivering care and receiving care. Interprofessional
collaboration is on the top of the list when researchers
evaluate systems for the care of back pain like appropriate
use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also assembled 70 quality indicators for chiropractic
delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take
into consideration patient worries and enhanced
clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity surely is a part
of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Williamson 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 treating back
pain patients was patient follow through (coming to appointments, doing exercises, following at-home
instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors stated
that they were optimistic about healthier patient
lifestyles. These chiropractors also reported that they were actively
involved in promoting physical activity, suggesting
exercises to patients for their particular issue, inquiring
how the exercises are going, and counseling patients in the
proper way 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 the use of a mobile application. Such
apps help manage low back and neck pain patients when they
are built around reported pain, pain intensity, and structure of the app like audio
explanation and animation of each exercise. (5) Doing the right exercises in the right way is the most effective.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
Core stabilization exercises are commonly
recommended to back pain patients. A new study that added
in diaphragmatic breathing exercises found many benefits
for chronic low back pain patients: enhanced muscle activity, chest
expansion, quality of sleep, enhanced disability and physical activity
and pain scores, reduced fear avoidance, and better
physical activity, among others. (6) As a part of
your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic feels a responsibility
to encourage physical activity so that you can manage your own
health a bit more. Our younger Williamson back
pain and neck pain sufferers get positive results. Our older adults who have aches and pains and/or back pain and/or neck pain get
positive results, too!
