"Why do I need on-going chiropractic
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Groton chiropractor,
just treat it and put a stop to the pain altogether so it doesn't come back?"
This is not an atypical
question, and it's also quite
logical. The answer is logically
understandable, too, though two-fold: we are born with spinal
issues or we develop them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with problems or weaknesses in our spines that will
be with us all life through. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are unique to one's
own spine. There is no route to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is our own. So we must learn how to use our spines so as to not cause
pain. Your Groton chiropractor at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office can perform
the spinal manipulation intended to relieve
your specific spinal condition. Then, you'll want to consider its
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You do not want to put
your now-pain-relieved spine in jeopardy again.
- nutritional needs - Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office will suggest
some nutrition ideas to strengthen
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening prerequisites - Our simple exercises do not take long but will
take you and your spine far in keeping it strong!
It is in these continued spine problems that
we - you and your Groton chiropractor - must
work together for the most welcome
outcome, even coming in for occasional spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us injure our backs. We do
things that damage the best
of spines: tumbling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting excess weight. You get the picture - things
we do in our normal activities of daily living may hurt
us, and we end up with back pain. So, when we hurt the spine to the
extent that we cause intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now will contend
with a spinal weakness which may become the weak link
in our spinal health.
We all must maintain a strong,
well-aligned spine and utilize the spine with the respect and knowledge of
avoiding those situations
that could cause it pain.
How? You and your Groton chiropractor see
each other on occasion.
A periodic visit to Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office for spinal alignment
and review of healthy spine maintenance is good. Continued spinal manipulation after the initial
pain-relieving care is even proposed as a way to maintain
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is much better than
having to go through repetitive treatment of Groton
back pain. It avoids pain and suffering in this moment and decreases the risk of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A new report described the
reality of low back pain being a major reason for disability around
the world. It’s persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not known to just go away and
never return. Fortunately, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been documented as
effective in reducing painful days for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was recorded to be
of high value described such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment concerned
others. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain decreases.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is no
fun. Relief is possible with
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office. Just understand that there is a logical need
and even benefit for periodic spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine conditions.
