Continued Eugene Chiropractic Care Benefits Back Pain Management

Regular Eugene chiropractic care. A good idea? Yep! Consider other helpful regular care concepts: Endocrinologists recommend that diabetics regularly monitor their blood sugars. Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings twice annually to keep plaque at bay. Cardiologists at the American Heart Association recommend doing at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity each week to have an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 30 minutes a day five days a week to keep the body in tune.  Nutritionists recommend proper food intake daily: fruits, veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to nourish the body well. Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2) Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not necessarily every day once the pain is under control, but on a regular schedule to keep in check spine pain – back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic sees many Eugene chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Eugene chiropractic patients who choose such care to keep their spines as healthy and pain-free as possible.

BACK PAIN STATS

80% of us humans will experience no less than one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of us has back pain right now. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic often tells patients that the existing episode of back pain is getting your attention for a reason. If for no other reason, it is begging for care. It will not be disregarded. Your spine will be grateful for a solid treatment plan to get rid of the pain as well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.

CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS

That’s where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Certainly our Eugene chiropractic patients realize that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know that they don’t want to suffer with that pain again! While there is no assurance that back pain or neck pain will not come back, preventing pain and/or its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free and worry free as possible. A recent study called the Nordic Maintenance Care Program stated that such chiropractic maintenance care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that limited activities and increased the number of pain free weeks between episodes. These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, doesn’t prevent new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to reduce life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with recurrent and persistent low back pain.
