Continued West Palm Beach chiropractic care fosters back pain relief.

WHY VISIT YOUR CHIROPRACTOR AFTER THE PAIN IS GONE? TO KEEP IT GONE!

Patients often ask how long they must visit for chiropractic care at Moses Chiropractic. In the end, their relief determines this. For some the end of care is figured out together, patient and the West Palm Beach chiropractor. For others, when the pain is . The patients decide for themselves. And when there is no pain, it makes sense to quit coming. Only there may be a special consideration: If back pain is bothersome and keeps you from doing the things you want to do, receiving chiropractic care on a regular schedule (aka “maintenance care”) whether you are hurting or not is beneficial. In a randomized control trial of 319 such patients, maintenance care dropped the number of painful day in acute episodes and improved the duration of pain-free days for back pain sufferers who have with recurrent and persistent low back pain. (1) Back pain is not typically cured. It’s like a bruise on an apple. It will not just go away. The bruise becomes a more vulnerable part of the apple. With back pain, the no-pain period is definitely refreshing, and continued chiropractic care via a West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan designed together can only help prevent more and/or more painful back pain episodes. Some patients seek maintenance care after suffering with several episodes of West Palm Beach back pain. Some set up a schedule right away to avoid waiting for the pain and having to begin again. Whichever patient type you are, Moses Chiropractic is the West Palm Beach chiropractic care partner for you!

West Palm Beach exercise helps patients with non-specific back pain and pre-back surgery patients though it is not often prescribed as much as opioids. 

West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise Benefits Before Back Surgery and for Non-Specific Low Back Pain

A 16-week study of supervised resistance training with variable low, moderate and high intensity exercise throughout a week time frame benefitted patients with persistent non-specific low back pain. How? By bettering pain, daily function and disability, energy level, muscle strength, sleep, and perception of physical activity as helpful. (2) Those are positive outcomes! Unfortunately, in the year before back surgery, only 34.8% of back pain patients had physical therapy (PT), 34.1% had at least one PT visit with exercise, and only 14.6% experienced a minimum of 6 exercise therapy visits. 84.4% were prescribed at least one opioid prescription fill with a mean of 6.1 unique fills each. (3) Conservative, non-drug care combining spinal manipulation and exercise are worthy pre-back surgery efforts. Moses Chiropractic is ready to do this with you!
