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.
GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
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.
BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN
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.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
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
