Regular Malverne chiropractic care. A good
idea? Yes! Consider other helpful regular care ideas: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly monitor their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times annually to keep plaque at bay. Cardiologists at the American Heart
Association recommend exercising 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 maintain
optimal health for the body. Nutritionists
recommend a good diet daily: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to feed the body properly.
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 daily once the pain is under control, but regularly to keep in check spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Malverne Health & Wellness treats
many Malverne chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Malverne
chiropractic patients who choose such care to maintain healthy and pain-free
spines as best they can.
BACK PAIN STATS
80% of us humans will have at
least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of
us has back pain this moment. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
Malverne Health & Wellness often advises 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. Surely our Malverne chiropractic patients know
that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand
that they do not want to suffer with that pain again!
While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain will
not come back, keeping that pain
at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthy
goal as is a goal to be able to do everyday activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A new study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program reported that such chiropractic maintenance
care decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that restrained
activities and increased the number of pain free weeks
between episodes. These outcomes may well help patients and doctors realistically
temper their expectations
of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not avert
new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to decrease
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Malverne back
pain patients, Malverne Health & Wellness is here.
Listen to this PODCAST
with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he describes how 20 years of maintenance care benefited
his veteran patient control his back pain so that he could live
his life the way he wants to live it.
