Moses Chiropractic Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

Quality of life. That’s the key factor in aging well and taking pleasure in life to its fullest. Moses Chiropractic is honored to work with West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to enhance their chances of aging well and enjoying the best quality of life possible. West Palm Beach back pain patients appreciate knowing what factors might adversely affect their quality of life and their options to diminish the influence of those factors.

FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE

Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis, disc degeneration and related back pain decrease quality of life. These conditions often happen in mid-life and older life, making life not very pleasant. Researchers reported on factors that seem to reduce the odds of suffering with these conditions. What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Good spinal alignment. Greater back muscle strength. No trouble with locomotion syndrome – difficulty moving from one position to another, one place to another. Good body balance. With all of these good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can expect a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are notoriously important issues in motor control functions like balance, attempts to strengthen these explicitly are critical to attempt to reverse such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is often a part of the chiropractic treatment plan for West Palm Beach back pain patients. Moses Chiropractic realizes that back pain sufferers have many healthcare forms of care from which to choose and shares what the researchers say about such options.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

To benefit most out of an option, the circumstances must be optimal.  Back surgery may not always be the best option for every West Palm Beach back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery doesn’t always produce fully the desired outcome, especially for patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability that accompany it stayed around for 29% to 42% of patients who reportedly experienced little to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain recommend non-surgical options like spinal manipulation as the first step. Chiropractic care incorporates spinal manipulation. Chiropractic care at Moses Chiropractic incorporates Cox® Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to get the sought after pain reduction outcome.

West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES

Chiropractic researchers are currently studying the particular effects of chiropractic care’s spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance improvement in patients with low back pain, especially active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were associated with back pain. (4) Low back pain is a common cause of disability in the military. Given that military personnel are people like the rest of us, this study’s findings will be interesting! Another study that added chiropractic - spinal manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic procedures such as rehabilitative exercise, cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – enhanced short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty military. (5) Moses Chiropractic gathers these positive studies to share with our West Palm Beach back pain patients.
