West Palm Beach Back Pain Relief Includes Self-Management

“Just give me something to stop the pain.” or “Just do something so I don’t hurt.” are just two comments Moses Chiropractic and fellow back pain healthcare practitioners commonly hear. When in pain, we all just want it to stop in the least effort required and fastest way possible. This is not always possible though. We all need to look at our pain and make friends with it to some extent. We can see it for what it is. Temporary. Unwelcome. Disruptive. But manageable many times when engaged. Moses Chiropractic urges our West Palm Beach back pain patients and neck pain patients to take part in their back pain relief process. It makes a difference. It may perhaps even alter your life for the better. Many West Palm Beach chiropractic patients have experienced this.

SELF-MANAGEMENT BENEFITS

Amazingly up to 25% of back pain patients in a new study were not actively involved in their spine care treatment plan. Research is ripe with papers emphasizing the significance of patient-involvement in treatment of spine pain. What kept such patients involved? In researcher-ease, environmental context and resources, emotion, memory/attention/decision-making, and behavioural regulation did. Knowing that these things were the interfering culprits that reduced patients’ participation in their own care, researchers created a special plan to deal with these issues and raise the patients’ understanding and participation via text reminders, exercises, lifestyle changes, webinars, videos, paper educational materials and more. (1) One study found that a variety of approaches to lessen disability and work absenteeism was cost effective though no one certain intervention stood out over others. (2) Like these researchers, Moses Chiropractic tries to do anything possible to help our West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain patients!

SPINE EXERCISES AND EMS

This may be a unique helpful intervention for certain patients: whole-body electromyostimulation. It decreased nonspecific chronic low back pain just as well as back-strengthening exercise protocols. When fear of movement and functional limitations due to back pain are a part of the problem, whole body electrical stimulation improved patients’ strength and stabilization in good time, dropping pain intensity and enhancing trunk flexors. (3) Moses Chiropractic shares such options to help our patients.

SELF-MANAGEMENT APP

Have you heard “There’s an app for that!”? Moses Chiropractic is sure you have! Not surprising45 in today’s app-crazy world that there is an app in development to help you keep track of self-management tasks like exercise, sleep, etc. For the “selfBACK” app, researchers are now collecting data on the effectiveness of various interventions at baseline, 6 weeks, 3, 6, and 9 months for nonspecific low back pain. From this research data, researchers will fill the app with tips and exercises that have worked for others experiencing similar issues. Each patient’s app will then be personalized for self-management of back pain and other musculoskeletal issues based upon others with similar conditions found helpful and relieving. (4) Moses Chiropractic looks forward to saying “There is an app for that!" Moses Chiropractic knows that some of our West Palm Beach back pain patients will love this!
