You have a bout of back pain – first,
second, tenth. Are you curious about what that means going
forward? Of course! The trajectory – researchers’ term
for the path of back pain – of the Plainville back pain
experience is unique to each, but there are factors
that may help foretell that course. Layden Chiropractic offers
a few ideas on the effect of lifestyle and
WHAT TO DO – Chiropractic
A new article’s findings make seeking chiropractic care
logical to contain the course of back pain. Patients
who undergo chiropractic care for their chronic (over 3 months) and acute (under a month) low back pain who
reported “much better” or “better” at one week of care were 4 to 5 times more
likely to report improvement at 30 days and 90 days of care.
Particularly, acute back pain patients who reported experiencing
more severe pain and disability at the start of care
recovered more quickly. The majority of
patients with lumbar radicular leg pain bettered. Both chronic and acute back pain patients reported good outcomes. (1)
Another study of the interdisciplinary care (spine
surgeons/chiropractors in a university hospital) of chronic back pain patients recorded
that almost half of the chronic low back pain patients cared with
chiropractic conservative care reported clinically relevant improvement. (2) Layden Chiropractic
sees even greater outcomes with our particular form
of chiropractic care, Cox® Technic!
WHAT TO DO – More Chiropractic
A question arises: why halt chiropractic
care with pain relief? Researchers documented that
low back pain patients who underwent chiropractic maintenance
care – chiropractic treatments on a regular basis unrelated to whether they
had symptoms – reported fewer
days of low back pain that limited their activities of daily living contrasted
with getting treatment only when a new low back pain episode arose. (3) More Plainville
chiropractic care on a regular basis seems positive.
WHAT TO DO – More Activity
More is not always better, but some kinds of
more are better, like chiropractic and activity. A low back pain patient
with a lifetime history of back pain may want to try engaging
in more moderate to vigorous physical activity since it
was shown to lower the odds of extending
severe low back pain over the following year. (4) Layden Chiropractic knows
none of us back pain sufferers wants to hear that,
but it is the finding of one study. More intense exercise
was shown beneficial. Know too that a sedentary lifestyle –
work and/or pleasure time – moderately increases the risk
of low back pain. (5) There is a middle ground! Let’s at
Layden Chiropractic discover that with you, the spot that inhibits
back pain and keeps you active as you want to be.
