"Why do I need continued chiropractic
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my West Palm Beach chiropractor,
just treat it and end the pain forever?"
This is not an uncommon
question, and it's also really
perceptive. The answer is logically
simple, too, though dual: we are born with spine-pain
issues or we acquire them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with spinal weaknesses that will
be with us all life through. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are unique to one's
own spine. There is no route to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is ours. So we must figure
out how to use our spines so as to not cause
pain. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor at Moses Chiropractic can deliver
the spinal manipulation intended to relieve
your specific spinal condition. Then, you will want to think
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You don't want to put
your now-pain-relieved spine in jeopardy again.
- nutritional needs - Moses Chiropractic will suggest
some nutrition ideas to strengthen
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening requirements - Our simple exercises don't take long but will
take you and your spine far in preserving its strength!
It is in these on-going spine problems that
we - you and your West Palm Beach chiropractor - must
partner for the best
outcome, even coming in for periodic spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us hurt our backs. We do
things that hurt the best
of spines: tumbling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting too much weight. You get the idea - things
we do in everyday activities of daily living may hurt
us, and we end up with back pain. So, when we hurt the spine to the
extent that we trigger intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now will contend
with a spinal weakness which may become the vulnerable link
in our spinal health.
We all must nurture a strong,
well-aligned spine and utilize the spine with the respect and knowledge of
dodging those settings
that could cause it pain.
How? You and your West Palm Beach chiropractor see
each other every now and then.
A recurring visit to Moses Chiropractic for spinal alignment
and assessment of healthy spine maintenance is appropriate. Continued spinal manipulation after the initial
pain-relieving care is even proposed as a way to obtain
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is far better than
having to go through repetitive treatment of West Palm Beach
back pain. It avoids pain and suffering in this moment and reduces the chance of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A recent report described the
reality of low back pain being a major reason for disability globally. It’s persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not known to just go away and
never return. Luckily, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been documented as
effective in reducing the number of days of pain for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was recorded to be
of high value saw such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment worried
others. (2) Moses Chiropractic strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain decreases.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is not
fun. Remedy is possible with
Moses Chiropractic. Just understand that there is a logical need
and even benefit for occasional spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine conditions.
