Murfreesboro Back Pain Relief Includes Self-Management

“Just give me something to stop the pain.” or “Just do something so I don’t hurt.” are just two comments Most Chiropractic Clinic and fellow back pain healthcare practitioners hear frequently. When in pain, we all just want it to stop in the simplest and fastest way possible. This isn’t always possible though. We all have to look at our pain and make friends with it to some extent. We have to see it for what it is. Temporary. Unwelcome. Disruptive. But manageable many times when engaged. Most Chiropractic Clinic encourages our Murfreesboro back pain patients and neck pain patients to participate in their back pain relief process. It can make a difference. It may perhaps even alter your life for the better. Many Murfreesboro chiropractic patients have experienced this.

SELF-MANAGEMENT BENEFITS

Remarkably up to 25% of back pain patients in a new study weren’t actively involved in their spine care treatment plan. Research is ripe with papers highlighting the significance of patient-engagement with treatment of spine pain. What kept such patients participating? In researcher-ease, environmental context and resources, emotion, memory/attention/decision-making, and behavioural regulation did. Knowing that these things were the interfering culprits that reduced patients’ participation in their own care, researchers made a special plan to address these issues and increase the patients’ understanding and participation via text reminders, exercises, lifestyle changes, webinars, videos, paper educational materials and more. (1) One study found that a mix of approaches to drop disability and work absenteeism was cost effective though no one certain intervention stood out over others. (2) Like these researchers, Most Chiropractic Clinic tries to do whatever it takes to help our Murfreesboro back pain and neck pain patients!

SPINE EXERCISES AND EMS

This may be a unique helpful intervention for certain patients: whole-body electromyostimulation. It dropped nonspecific chronic low back pain equally as well as back-strengthening exercise protocols. When fear of movement and functional limitations due to back pain are a part of the problem, whole body electrical stimulation improved patients’ strength and stabilization in a timely fashion, decreasing pain intensity and enhancing trunk flexors. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic shares such options to help our patients.

SELF-MANAGEMENT APP

Have you heard “There’s an app for that!”? Most Chiropractic Clinic is sure you have! Not surprising45 in today’s app-crazy world that there is an app in development to help you manage self-management tasks like exercise, sleep, etc. For the “selfBACK” app, researchers are now collecting data on the effectiveness of various interventions at baseline, 6 weeks, 3, 6, and 9 months for nonspecific low back pain. From this data collection, researchers will fill the app with tips and exercises that have worked for others with similar issues. Each patient’s app will then be tailored for self-management of back pain and other musculoskeletal issues based on what others with similar conditions found helpful and relieving. (4) Most Chiropractic Clinic looks forward to saying “There's an app for that!" Most Chiropractic Clinic knows that some of our Murfreesboro back pain patients will love this!
