BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
They run the gamut. Young Chiropractic knows. Everyone from friends, family members, researchers, doctors, others, have ideas and stories. In light of the variability of back pain care recommendations, researchers suggest that the standardization of back pain care - exercise, spinal manipulation and opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers most. (1) We agree. We examin the research and mix it with our clinical experience to develop a personalized treatment plan for our back pain patients. With the predicted growth of low back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people globally to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug, non-surgical choices for back pain are welcome, especially ones that are tried and documented to be beneficial. A recent paper was just published regarding the care for one type of back pain - continued back pain after back surgery known as failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) - that often results in continued or increased opioid pain medication use. The study found that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression Manipulation reported decreased or discontinued use of opioids in the course of an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That’s a positive outcome of a treatment approach to incorporate into the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!
So what can our Easley chiropractic patients do to limit their back pain and its effect on their lives? Sleep. Keep active. Undergo spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain sufferers noted that more sleep, less sedentariness, and more moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was beneficial. The authors described an example of how swapping 30 minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep lessened low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is important! (4) So too is a visit to the Easley chiropractor for spinal manipulation as it is listed in the recommendations by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain along with exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Young Chiropractic is experienced in delivering gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, designing a simple exercise plan, and recommending therapy and/or more advance rehab as necessary or desired. Trust us to help! Our Easley back pain patients are in good hands.
