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 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!
