Association recommend exercising at least 150 minutes of

Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College
of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2)
Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not
necessarily every day once the pain is under control, but on a
regular schedule to keep in check spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. New Roads Chiropractic Center sees
many New Roads chiropractic patients on a regular basis, New Roads
chiropractic patients who choose such care to maintain healthy and pain-free
spines as best they can.
BACK PAIN STATS
80% of us humans will have at
least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of
us experiences back pain this moment. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
New Roads Chiropractic Center often tells patients that the existing
episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is begging for care. It will not
be ignored. Your spine will value
an effective treatment plan to get rid of the pain as
well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.
CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS
That is where regular chiropractic care comes
into play. Certainly our New Roads chiropractic patients realize
that chiropractic care alleviates back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know
that they do not want to suffer with such pain again!
While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain will
not come back, preventing pain and/or its return to as mild as possible is a worthy
goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A recent study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program stated that such chiropractic maintenance
care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced
activities and boosted the number of pain free weeks
between episodes. These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations
of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, doesn’t prevent
new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to decrease
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these New Roads back
pain patients, New Roads Chiropractic Center is here.
Listen to this PODCAST
with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care benefited

his life the way he wants to live it.
