Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings twice annually to keep plaque at bay. Cardiologists at the American Heart Association recommend doing at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity each week to have an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 150 minutes a week to keep the body in tune.  Nutritionists recommend a good diet a day: fruits, veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to feed the body well. Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2) Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not necessarily every day once the pain is under control, but regularly to keep in check spine pain – back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain.

BACK PAIN STATS

80% of us humans will have no less than one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of us experiences back pain right now. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office often tells patients that the current episode of back pain is getting your attention for a reason. If for no other reason, it is asking for care. It won’t be disregarded. Your spine will welcome an effective treatment plan to end the pain as well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.

CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS

That is where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Certainly our Groton chiropractic patients know that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand that they don’t want to suffer with that pain again! While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain will not come back, keeping that pain at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free and worry free as possible. A new study titled the Nordic Maintenance Care Program found that such chiropractic maintenance care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that restrained activities and boosted the number of pain free weeks between episodes. These outcomes may well help patients and doctors realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, doesn’t avert new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to decrease life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have recurrent and persistent low back pain.
