Sitka Back Pain Care and Exercise Guidelines

Guidelines. There are guidelines for everything! This post talks about some of the newer guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other healthcare providers to boost the healing of Sitka back pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a primary part of back pain prevention alongside management that all providers encourage and all providers are worried aren’t always executed. Chiropractors like your own at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka are health promoters and work to do that in the kindest, most supportive way! Let us work together to get you better.


Everything in healthcare is about quality. Providers and patients desire the best quality care possible in delivering care and getting care. Interprofessional collaboration is on the top of the list when researchers analyze systems for the care of back pain like suitable use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also assembled 70 quality markers for chiropractic delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take into account patient concerns and higher clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity surely is a part of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Sitka pain relief.


In a recent survey, chiropractors reported that the biggest concern they had in managing back pain patients was patient follow through (exercises, appointments, at-home recommendations, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors stated that they were optimistic about healthier patient lifestyles. These chiropractors also shared that they were actively engaged in promoting physical activity, recommending exercises to patients for their particular condition, inquiring how the exercises are going, and advising patients in the proper technique to do exercises as well as value of doing exercises. (4) One way that patients seem to follow through more positively and be more willing to do physical activity is using a mobile app. Such apps help handle low back and neck pain patients when they are built around reported pain, pain intensity, and structure of the app like audio explanation and animation of each exercise. (5)  Doing the right exercises in the right way is the most helpful.


Core stabilization exercises are commonly recommended to back pain patients. A new study that incorporated diaphragmatic breathing exercises recorded many advantages for chronic low back pain patients: enhanced muscle activity, chest expansion, quality of sleep, enhanced disability and physical activity and pain scores, less fear avoidance, and higher physical activity, and more. (6) As a partner on your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka feels a duty to encourage physical activity so that you can manage your own health a bit more. Our younger back pain and neck pain sufferers benefit. Our older adults who have aches and pains and/or Sitka back pain and/or neck pain benefit, too!
