Regular Sitka chiropractic care. A helpful
idea? Yep! Consider other helpful regular care ideas: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly monitor their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times a
year to keep plaque at bay. Cardiologists at the American Heart
Association recommend performing at least 150 minutes of
moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity each week to have
an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 30
minutes a day five days a week to maintain
optimal health for the body. Nutritionists
recommend a good diet daily: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to nourish 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 every day once the pain is under control, but regularly to keep in check spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka treats
many Sitka chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Sitka
chiropractic patients who choose such care to maintain healthy and pain-free
spines as best they can.
BACK PAIN STATS
80% of us humans will have at
least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of
us experiences back pain this moment. Back pain is
known to come and go not disappear for
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka often advises patients that the existing
episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is begging for care. It will not
be disregarded. Your spine will value
an effective treatment plan to end 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. Surely our Sitka chiropractic patients know
that chiropractic care alleviates back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know
that they do not want to suffer with that pain again!
While there is no assurance that back pain or neck pain won’t come back, preventing pain and/or its return to as mild as possible is a worthy
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 decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that limited
activities and boosted 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, doesn’t stop
new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to reduce
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Sitka back
pain patients, Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is here.
Listen to this PODCAST
with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care benefited
his veteran patient contain his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
