The Value of Sitka Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you describe that? Do you live it? Do you know what behaviors are healthy? Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is all about healthy living. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Sitka chiropractic patients can expect their Sitka chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them cope with current spine pain issues but also avent future episodes of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best prevented.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Non-smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, do they not? A recent study showed that men who took advantage of more of these healthy choices had lower possibility of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Eating fruit and vegetables is an additional favorable healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors appeared to reduce the risk of having long term upsetting low back pain in women and even potentially improve the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Taking part in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Using a lumbar support orthosis increases postural control when standing on unlevel ground.  This may be particularly welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unsteady. (4) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka works with our Sitka back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues encourages more healthy behaviors. When patients are able to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were lower than if they sought care from their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access makes a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief found that their familiarity with the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, geographical proximity, and credentials of the doctor prompted their choice.
