"Why do I need continued chiropractic
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Plainville chiropractor,
just treat it and put a stop to the pain altogether so it doesn't come back?"
This is not an atypical
question, and it's also really
logical. The answer is logically
understandable, too, though two-fold: we are born with spinal
issues or we acquire them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with spinal issues that will
be with us all life through. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are distinctive to one's
own spine. There is no way to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is our own. So we must learn how to respect our spines so as to not cause
pain. Your Plainville chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic can perform
the spinal manipulation intended to relieve
your specific spinal condition. Then, you'll want to consider its
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You don't want to compromise your now-pain-relieved
spine further or again.
- nutritional needs - Layden Chiropractic will suggest
some nutrition ideas to strengthen
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening prerequisites - Our simple exercises don't take long but will
take you and your spine far in preserving its strength!
It is in these continued spine problems that
we - you and your Plainville chiropractor - must
work together for the best
outcome, even coming in for occasional spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us hurt our backs. We do
things that injure the best
of spines: tumbling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting too much weight. You get the picture - things
we do in our normal activities of daily living may injure
us, and we end up with back pain. So, when we hurt the spine to the
extent that we trigger intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now have a spinal weakness which may become the vulnerable link
in our spinal health.
We all must maintain a strong,
well-aligned spine and use the spine with the respect and knowledge of
dodging those situations
that could cause it pain.
How? You and your Plainville chiropractor see
each other every so often.
A periodic visit to Layden Chiropractic for spinal alignment
and assessment of healthy spine maintenance is good. Continued spinal manipulation after the original
pain-relieving care is even suggested as a way to chieve
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is far better than
having to go through repeated treatment of Plainville
back pain. It avoids pain and suffering in this moment and reduces the risk of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A new report reflected on the
reality of low back pain being a major reason for disability globally. It is persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not common that it just goes away and never returns. Luckily, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been found to be
effective in reducing painful days for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was recorded to be
of high value viewed such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment worried
others. (2) Layden Chiropractic strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain decreases.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is no
fun. Remedy is possible with
Layden Chiropractic. Just understand that there is a logical necessity
and even benefit for periodic spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine problems.
