You have a bout of back pain – first,
second, tenth. Do you wonder what that means going
forward? Certainly, you are! The trajectory – researchers’ name
for the path of back pain – of the Murfreesboro back pain
experience is unique to each, but there are factors
that may help predict that course. Most Chiropractic Clinic shares
some input on the influence of lifestyle and
WHAT TO DO – Chiropractic
A new article’s findings make seeking chiropractic care
logical to impact the course of back pain. Patients
who undergo chiropractic care for their chronic (more
than 3 months) and acute (under a month) low back pain who
reported “much better” or “better” at one week of care were 4 to 5 times more
likely to report improvement at 1 and 3 months of care.
More specifically, acute back pain patients who reported experiencing
more severe pain and disability at the start of care
recovered faster. The majority of
patients with lumbar radicular leg pain bettered. Both chronic and acute back pain patients reported good outcomes. (1)
Another study of the interdisciplinary care (spine
surgeons/chiropractors in a university hospital) of chronic back pain patients documented
that almost half of the chronic low back pain patients cared with
chiropractic conservative care reported clinically relevant improvement. (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic
sees even better outcomes with our particular form
of chiropractic care, Cox® Technic!
WHAT TO DO – More Chiropractic
So why stop chiropractic
care with pain relief? A study demonstrated that
low back pain patients who underwent chiropractic maintenance
care – chiropractic treatments on a regular basis regardless of their symptoms – experienced fewer
days of low back pain that limited their activities of daily living compared
with getting treatment only when a new low back pain episode arose. (3) More Murfreesboro
chiropractic care on a regular basis looks beneficial.
WHAT TO DO – More Activity
More is not always better, but some types of
more are better, like chiropractic and activity. A low back pain patient
with a lifetime history of back pain may want to try participating
in more moderate to vigorous physical activity since it
was shown to lower the odds of extending
severe low back pain over the next year. (4) Most Chiropractic Clinic knows
none of us back pain sufferers wants to hear that,
but it is the finding of one study. More intense exercise
was shown beneficial. Understand too that a sedentary lifestyle –
work and/or pleasure time – moderately raises the odds
of low back pain. (5) There is a middle ground! Let’s at

back pain and keeps you active as you want to be.
