How Long Do I Have to See The Chiropractor?

"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 spondylolisthesistransitional 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 perform the spinal manipulation intended to relieve your specific spinal condition. Then, you will want to think about its 

  • 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 prerequisites - Our simple exercises don't take long but will take you and your spine far in preserving its strength!

It is in these continued 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 discarthritis, 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 disruptive. 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. (1)
