Quality of life. That’s the central
factor in aging well and taking pleasure in life to its fullest.
Layden Chiropractic is honored to work with
Plainville chiropractic patients to boost their odds
of aging well and enjoying the best quality of life
possible. Plainville back pain patients appreciate knowing what factors might adversely impact
their quality of life and their options to diminish the
influence of those factors.
FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE
Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis,
disc degeneration and related back pain lower
quality of life. These conditions often arise in mid-life and
older life, rendering life not very enjoyable.
Researchers found factors that seem to decrease
the odds of suffering with these conditions.
What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Good spinal alignment.
Greater back muscle strength. No issue with locomotion syndrome –
trouble with moving from one position to
another, one place to another. Stable body balance. With all
of these good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can expect
a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are notoriously important issues in motor control functions
like balance, attempts to strengthen these explicitly
are important to attempt to turn around
such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is manytimes a part
of the chiropractic treatment plan for Plainville back pain patients.
Layden Chiropractic realizes that back pain sufferers have many healthcare
forms of care from which to choose and shares what the
researchers say about the options.
To get the most out of an option, the
circumstances must be optimal. Back
surgery may not always be the best option for every Plainville
back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery doesn’t always produce
fully the desired outcome, particularly for
patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability
that accompany it stayed around for 29% to 42%
of patients who reportedly experienced little
to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain propose
non-surgical options like spinal manipulation as the first step.
Chiropractic care incorporates spinal manipulation.
Chiropractic care at Layden Chiropractic is all about Cox®
Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to get
the desired pain reduction outcome.
Plainville CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES
Chiropractic researchers are currently looking
into the particular effects of chiropractic care’s
spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance improvement in patients with low back pain, particularly
active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were related to back pain. (4) Low back pain is a familiar
cause of disability in the military. Given that military personnel are people like the rest of us, this
study’s results will be interesting! In another study, the addition of chiropractic care - spinal
manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic
approaches such as rehabilitative exercise,
cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical
care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – enhanced
short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty
military. (5) Layden Chiropractic collects these helpful
studies to share with our Plainville back pain patients.
