Regular Easley chiropractic care. A good idea? Yep! Consider other good regular care concepts: Endocrinologists recommend that diabetics regularly monitor their blood sugars. Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times annually to keep plaque at bay. Cardiologists at the American Heart Association recommend doing at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity a week to have an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 150 minutes a week to keep the body in tune. Nutritionists recommend proper food intake daily: fruits, veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to feed the body properly. Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2) Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not necessarily daily once the pain is under control, but regularly to prevent spine pain – back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Young Chiropractic treats many Easley chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Easley chiropractic patients who choose such care to keep their spines as healthy and pain-free as possible.
BACK PAIN STATS
80% of us humans will experience no less than one episode of back pain in our lifetime. One in 3 of us experiences back pain right now. Back pain is known to come and go not disappear for life. Young Chiropractic often tells patients that the current episode of back pain is getting your attention for a reason. If for no other reason, it is asking for care. It won’t be disregarded. Your spine will welcome an effective treatment plan to get rid of the pain as well as a plan to maintain its mobility and health.
CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS
That’s where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Certainly our Easley chiropractic patients know that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand that they do not want to suffer with such pain again! While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain will not come back, keeping that pain at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile goal as is a goal to be able to do everyday activities as pain free and worry free as possible. A recent study titled the Nordic Maintenance Care Program found that such chiropractic maintenance care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that restrained activities and improved the number of pain free weeks between episodes. These outcomes may well help patients and doctors realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not avert new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to reduce life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with recurrent and persistent low back pain.
