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 rises to the top when researchers analyze systems for the care of back pain like proper use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also put together 70 quality markers for chiropractic delivery that are standardized as well as evidence-based that take into consideration patient concerns and enhanced clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity surely is a component of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Easley 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 noted that they were optimistic about healthier patient lifestyles. These chiropractors also reported that they were actively involved in promoting physical activity, recommending exercises to patients for their particular issue, inquiring how the exercises are going, and advising 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 using a mobile application. Apps that are build built around reported pain, pain intensity, and app features like audio explanation and animation of each exercise are well received. (5) Doing the right exercises in the right way typically brings about the rightfully desired outcome.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
Core stabilization exercises are commonly recommended to back pain patients. A new study that added in diaphragmatic breathing exercises recorded many advantages for chronic low back pain patients: enhanced muscle activity, chest expansion, quality of sleep, improved disability and physical activity and pain scores, reduced fear avoidance, and increased physical activity, among others.
