The Value of Chicago Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you define that? Do you embody it? Do you know what behaviors are healthy? Chiropractic Care is all about healthy living. Chiropractic Care sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Chicago chiropractic patients can trust their Chicago chiropractor to be an escort to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them cope with exisiting spine pain issues but also avent future episodes of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best avoided.

HEALTHY BEHAVIORS

What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, do they not? A recent study described that men who took advantage of 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 positive healthy behavior. This plus the other behaviors are shown to lessen the chance of having long term upsetting low back pain in women and even potentially improve the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Taking part in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program improves the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Utilizing a lumbar support orthosis increases postural control when standing on unlevel ground.  This may be particularly welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unsteady. (4) Chiropractic Care works with our Chicago back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.

CHOICE OF CARE

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