"Why do I need continued chiropractic
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Murfreesboro chiropractor,
just treat it and end the pain forever?"
This is not a bizarre
question, and it's also quite
reasonable. The answer is fairly
simple, too, though two-fold: we are born with spinal
issues or we develop them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with spinal weaknesses that will
be with us all life through. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are distinctive to one's
own spine. There is no route to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is our own. So we must figure
out how to use our spines so as to not trigger
pain. Your Murfreesboro chiropractor at Most Chiropractic Clinic can deliver
the spinal manipulation intended to relieve
your specific spinal condition. Then, you'll want to consider its
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You don't want to put
your now-pain-relieved spine in jeopardy again.
- nutritional needs - Most Chiropractic Clinic will share
some nutrition ideas to improve
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening prerequisites - Our simple exercises don't take long but will
take you and your spine far in keeping it strong!
It is in these continued spine problems that
we - you and your Murfreesboro chiropractor - must
collaborate for the greatest
outcome, even coming in for periodic spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us injure our backs. We do
things that damage the best
of spines: tumbling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting excess weight. You get the idea - things
we do in our normal activities of daily living may harm
us, and we end up with back pain. So, when we hurt the spine to the
extent that we trigger intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now will contend
with a spinal weakness which may become the vulnerable link
in our spinal health.
We all must maintain a strong,
well-aligned spine and utilize the spine with the respect and knowledge of
staying away from those situations
that could trigger pain.
How? You and your Murfreesboro chiropractor see
each other every so often.
A recurring visit to Most Chiropractic Clinic for spinal alignment
and review of healthy spine maintenance is helpful. Continued spinal manipulation after the original
pain-relieving care is even proposed as a way to maintain
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is much better than
having to go through repeated treatment of Murfreesboro
back pain. It avoids pain and suffering in the
present and reduces the chance of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A new report reflected on the
reality of low back pain being a major cause of disability around
the world. It is persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not common that it just goes away and never returns. Luckily, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been found to be
effective in reducing painful days for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was recorded to be
of high value saw such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment worried
others. (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain decreases.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is disruptive. Alleviation of your pain is possible with
Most Chiropractic Clinic. Just understand that there is a logical necessity
and even benefit for periodic spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine conditions.
