Apple Country Chiropractic Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

Quality of life. That’s the key factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest. Apple Country Chiropractic is grateful to work with Williamson chiropractic patients to boost their odds of aging well and experiencing the best quality of life possible. Williamson back pain patients appreciate knowing what factors might negatively affect their quality of life and their options to reduce the influence of those factors.

FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE

Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis, disc degeneration and related back pain lower quality of life. These conditions often happen in mid-life and older life, making life not very pleasant. Researchers reported on factors that seem to decrease the odds of getting these problems. What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Fine spinal alignment. Greater back muscle strength. No issue with locomotion syndrome – trouble with moving from one position to another, one place to another. Stable body balance. With such good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can expect a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are notoriously important factors in motor control functions like balance, attempts to strengthen these explicitly are important to try to reverse such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is often a part of the chiropractic treatment plan for Williamson back pain patients. Apple Country Chiropractic realizes that back pain sufferers have many healthcare forms of care from which to choose and shares what the researchers say about such options.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

To get the most out of an option, the circumstances must be optimal.  Back surgery may not always be the choice option for every Williamson back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery doesn’t always result in the desired outcome, especially for patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability that come with it lingered for 29% to 42% of patients who reportedly experienced minimal to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain recommend non-surgical options like spinal manipulation as the first step. Chiropractic care is all about spinal manipulation. Chiropractic care at Apple Country Chiropractic is all about Cox® Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to get the desired pain reduction outcome.

Williamson CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES

Chiropractic researchers are presently studying the particular effects of chiropractic care’s spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance better outcomes in patients with low back pain, particularly active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were associated with back pain. (4) Low back pain is a common cause of disability in the military. Seeing as how military personnel are people like us all, this study’s results will be interesting! Another study that added chiropractic - spinal manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic approaches like rehabilitative exercise, cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – enhanced short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty military. (5) Apple Country Chiropractic collects these positive studies to share with our Williamson back pain patients.
