Most Chiropractic Clinic Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

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.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

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.
