The GLOBAL Role of Chiropractic for Back Pain
Now is the time for chiropractic! Young Chiropractic is thrilled to offer chiropractic services in Easley and be a part of this time in healthcare. Lancet, one of the foremost medical journals, presented a series of articles on the sad state that healthcare systems around the globe are managing low back pain. Back pain is an enormous problem everywhere and getting worse. And chiropractic is “perfectly placed to be a major player in providing a part of the solution to the global challenge of low back” if its providers adhere guidelines (like your chiropractor aims to do!) to not order excessive x-rays, stick to evidence-based care clinical practice guidelines, and keep up-to-date of the latest research (and even taking part in research when possible!). Chiropractic is recognized for its role in caring for back pain. It needs to find its way into mainstream healthcare to relieve more back pain and neck pain sufferers non-pharmacologically and non-surgically. (1) The World Federation of Chiropractic is developing toolkits for chiropractors to engage with public health communities and be of more service to patients and communities within the health system as esteemed partners for their health and well-being. (2) Your Easley chiropractor at Young Chiropractic appreciates this sponsorship and foreshight from a world chiropractic organization as that is just what this Easley chiropractic practice of Young Chiropractic plans to do here in Easley.
Check out this PODCAST with Dr. Christophe Dean on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about how he integrates Cox® Technic into his Easley patient care to help decrease back pain.
TIP OF THE MONTH: Wear a Back Support
Low back pain patients at Young Chiropractic may benefit from wearing a lumbar back belt. New research reveals that a lumbar support belt does not necessarily cause muscle weakness but rather increases walking distance capability for spinal stenosis patients with intermittent claudication, reduces pain and fear of pain, lessens use of pain medications, and strengthens muscle strength, flexibility, and activities of daily living. (3-10) Great benefits! Your chiropractor carefully considers when and if to recommend back braces for each individual Easley back pain patient as he or she gets better with Easley chiropractic care, understanding the advantages back braces may give along the way.
