Regular Groton chiropractic care. A good
idea? Yes! Consider other helpful regular care ideas: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars.
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. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office treats
many Groton chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Groton
chiropractic patients who choose such care to maintain healthy and pain-free
spines as best they can.
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. (3) For these Groton back
pain patients, Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is here.

with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he describes how 20 years of maintenance care benefited

his life the way he wants to live it.
