BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
They run the gamut.
New Roads Chiropractic Center hears about them all the time. Everyone from
friends, family members, researchers, doctors, etc., have ideas
and stories. In light of the wide range of back
pain care recommendations, researchers suggest that the standardization
of care for back pain - exercise, spinal manipulation and
opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers
best. (1) We concur. We review
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 choices for back pain are welcome, especially
ones that are tested and documented
as beneficial. A a recently published paper regarding
the care for a specific type of back pain - continued back pain after
back surgery also called failed back surgery syndrome
(FBSS) - that often develops into continued or increased opioid
pain medication use. The study stated
that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression
Manipulation experienced reduction or discontinuation of opioid use in the course
of an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That’s an
encouraging outcome of a treatment approach to include in the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!
So what can our New Roads chiropractic patients do
to control their back pain and its impact on their lives?
Sleep. Keep active. Get to
their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain
sufferers noted that more sleep, less sedentariness,
and more moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was
beneficial. The authors shared 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 New Roads chiropractor for spinal
manipulation as recommended in the guidelines published
by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having
good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain together with
exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) New Roads Chiropractic Center is experienced in delivering
gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, designing
a simple exercise plan, and referring out for
therapy and/or more advance rehab as needed or wanted.
