Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka Shares Your 2024 Goal of Relief of Back Pain

A new goal for the new goal. We all aim for something new in a new year. For Sitka back pain sufferers, a decrease in back pain is a understandable goal with Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka by your side. Back pain sufferers are certainly not alone, and research continues to produce and share hopeful reports of what works so that both the back pain sufferer and the chiropractor - as well as other concerned healthcare providers – deliver the optimal care for the optimal outcome: less back pain. Start 2024 off right with Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka’s help for back pain relief! We have lots of effective chiropractic services


Suggestions and recommendations run the gamut. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka knows. Everyone from friends, family members, researchers, doctors, others, have opinions and stories. In light of the variability of back pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization of back pain care - exercise, spinal manipulation and opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers most favorably. (1) We concur. We read the research and mix it with our experience when developing an individualized treatment plan for our back pain patients. With the expected 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 options for back pain are welcome, especially ones that are tried and verified as being beneficial.  A new paper was just published regarding the care for a specific type of back pain - continued back pain after back surgery known as failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) - that often develops into continued or increased opioid pain medication use.  The study found that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression Manipulation experienced decreased or discontinued use of opioids in the course of an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That is a positive outcome of a treatment approach to incorporate into the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!


So what can our Sitka chiropractic patients do to control their back pain and its impact on their lives? Sleep. Be active. Undergo spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain sufferers noted that additional sleep, less sedentariness, and increased 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 reduced low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is important! (4) So too is a visit to the Sitka 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) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is experienced in delivering gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, creating an easy exercise plan, and referring out for therapy and/or more advance rehab as necessary or wanted. Trust us to help! Our Sitka back pain patients are in good hands.
