Quality of life. That’s the important
factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest.
Chiropractic Care is grateful to work with
West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to increase their odds
of aging well and relishing the best quality of life
possible. West Palm Beach back pain patients understand
that knowing what factors might negatively impact
their quality of life and their options to lessen 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 happen in mid-life and
older life, rendering life not very pleasant.
Researchers reported on factors that seem to decrease
the odds of acquiring these conditions.
What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Fine spinal alignment.
Greater back muscle strength. No trouble with locomotion syndrome –
trouble with switching positions. 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 key factors in motor control functions
like balance, attempts to strengthen these particularly
are critical to try to turn around
such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is manytimes a part
of the chiropractic treatment plan for West Palm Beach back pain patients.
Chiropractic Care knows that back pain sufferers have many healthcare
forms of care from which to pick 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 choice option for every West Palm Beach
back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery doesn’t always produce
fully the desired outcome, especially for
patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability
that come with it lingered for 29% to 42%
of patients who reportedly had minimal
to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain propose
non-surgical options like spinal manipulation first.
Chiropractic care incorporates spinal manipulation.
Chiropractic care at Chiropractic Care incorporates Cox®
Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to get
the sought after pain reduction outcome.
West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES
Chiropractic researchers are currently looking
into the particular effects of chiropractic care’s
spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance better
outcomes 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 common
reason for disability in the military. Seeing as
how military personnel are people like us all, this
study’s findings will be interesting! Another study that added
chiropractic - spinal
manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic
procedures 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) Chiropractic Care gathers these positive
studies to share with our West Palm Beach back pain patients.
