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 set 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 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!
