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 won’t
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. (3) For these Eugene back
pain patients, Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is here.
Listen to this PODCAST
with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care benefited
his veteran patient contain his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
