Continued Murfreesboro chiropractic care fosters back pain relief.

WHY VISIT YOUR CHIROPRACTOR AFTER THE PAIN IS GONE? TO KEEP IT GONE!

Patients often ask how long they have to come for chiropractic care at Most Chiropractic Clinic. In the end, their relief dictates this. For some the end of care is decided together, patient and the Murfreesboro chiropractor. For others, when the pain is gone, they are gone. The patients make the decision themselves. And when there’s no pain, it makes sense to quit coming. However, there may be a special factor to consider: If back pain is bothersome and keeps you from doing what you want to do, continuing chiropractic care on a regular schedule (aka “maintenance care”) whether you are hurting or not is beneficial. In a randomized control trial of 319 such patients, maintenance care decreased the number of painful day in acute episodes and increased the duration of pain-free days for patients with recurrent and persistent low back pain. (1) Back pain is not typically cured. It’s like a bruise on an apple. It won’t just disappear. The bruise is now a more susceptible part of the apple. With back pain, the no-pain period is surely pleasant, and continued chiropractic care via a Murfreesboro chiropractic treatment plan set together can only help prevent more and/or more painful back pain episodes. Some patients ask for maintenance care after suffering with several episodes of Murfreesboro back pain. Some schedule right away to avoid waiting for the pain and having to begin again. Whichever patient type you are, Most Chiropractic Clinic is the Murfreesboro chiropractic care partner for you!

Murfreesboro exercise helps patients with non-specific back pain and pre-back surgery patients though it’s not often prescribed as much as opioids. 

Murfreesboro CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise Benefits Before Back Surgery and for Non-Specific Low Back Pain

A 16-week study of supervised resistance training with variable low, moderate and high intensity exercise throughout a week time frame benefitted patients with persistent non-specific low back pain. How? By improving pain, daily function and disability, energy level, muscle strength, sleep, and perception of physical activity as helpful. (2) Those are positive outcomes! Sadly, in the year before back surgery, only 34.8% of back pain patients had physical therapy (PT), 34.1% had at least one PT visit with exercise, and just 14.6% experienced a minimum of 6 exercise therapy visits. 84.4% got at least one opioid prescription fill with a mean of 6.1 unique fills each. (3) Conservative, non-drug care including spinal manipulation and exercise are worthy pre-back surgery efforts. Most Chiropractic Clinic is here to do this with you!

Listen to this PODCAST with chiropractic back pain specialist, James Cox DC DACBR, developer of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, and a PODCAST with spine surgeon, David Hanscome, MD, on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as they discuss the conservative approach to dealing with Murfreesboro back pain.
