BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
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.
