Quality of life. That’s the central
factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest.
Most Chiropractic Clinic is grateful to work with
Murfreesboro chiropractic patients to increase their chances
of aging well and experiencing the best quality of life
possible. Murfreesboro back pain patients value knowing what factors might negatively impact
their quality of life and their options to reduce the
influence of those factors.
FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE
Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis,
disc degeneration and related back pain negatively impact
quality of life. These conditions often arise in mid-life and
older life, making life not very enjoyable.
Researchers reported on factors that seem to decrease
the odds of suffering with these problems.
What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Good spinal alignment.
Greater back muscle strength. No issue with locomotion syndrome –
trouble with moving from one position to
another, one place to another. Good body balance. With such good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can expect
a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are known
to be key factors in motor control functions
like balance, efforts to strengthen these explicitly
are critical to try to reverse
such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is manytimes a part
of the chiropractic treatment plan for Murfreesboro back pain patients.
Most Chiropractic Clinic knows that back pain sufferers have many healthcare
forms of care from which to choose and shares what the
researchers say about such options.
To get the most out of an option, the
circumstances must be optimal. Back
surgery may not always be the best option for every Murfreesboro
back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery doesn’t always produce
fully the desired outcome, especially for
patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability
that accompany it stayed around for 29% to 42%
of patients who supposedly had little
to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain recommend
non-surgical options like spinal manipulation first.
Chiropractic care incorporates spinal manipulation.
Chiropractic care at Most Chiropractic Clinic incorporates Cox®
Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to get
the desired pain reduction outcome.
Murfreesboro CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES
Chiropractic researchers are currently looking
into the particular effects of chiropractic care’s
spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance better
outcomes in patients with low back pain, particularly
active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were related to back pain. (4) Low back pain is a familiar
cause of disability in the military. Seeing as
how military personnel are people like the rest of us, this
study’s findings will be interesting! In another study, the addition of chiropractic care - spinal
manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic
approaches such as rehabilitative exercise,
cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical
care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – improved
short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty
military. (5) Most Chiropractic Clinic collects these helpful
studies to share with our Murfreesboro back pain patients.
