Quality of life. That’s the important factor in aging well and taking pleasure in 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.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

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.

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.
