How Long Do I Have to See The Chiropractor?

"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 spondylolisthesistransitional 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 perform 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 discarthritis, 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. (1)
