The Value of Eugene Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you describe that? Do you live it? What are healthy living behaviors? Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is all about healthy living. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Eugene chiropractic patients can expect their Eugene chiropractor to be an escort to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them deal with current spine pain issues but also avent future episodes of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best prevented.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those sound about right, do they not? A recent study showed that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had lower possibility of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is an additional favorable healthy behavior. This plus the other behaviors are shown to decrease the possibility of developing long term troubling low back pain in women and even potentially better the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Taking part in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Using a lumbar support belt improves postural control when standing on unlevel ground.  This may be especially helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unsteady. (4) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic works with our Eugene back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues results in more healthy behaviors. When patients are given the opportunity to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were less than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access results in a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief found that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network endorsements, geographical proximity, and credentials of the doctor prompted their choice.
