BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
They run the gamut.
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office hears about them all the time. Everyone from
friends, family members, researchers, doctors, others, have opinions
and stories. In light of the inconsistency of back
pain care recommendations, researchers suggest that the standardization
of back pain care - exercise, spinal manipulation and
opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers
best. (1) We concur. We study
the research and mingle it with our clinical experience to develop an individualized treatment
plan for our back pain patients. With the predicted growth of low
back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people globally
to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug,
non-surgical choices for back pain are welcome, especially
ones that are tested and documented
as beneficial. A a recently published paper regarding
the care for one type of back pain - continued back pain after
back surgery known as failed back surgery syndrome
(FBSS) - that often results in continued or increased opioid
pain medication use. The study stated
that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression
Manipulation experienced reduction or discontinuation of opioid use during an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That’s an
encouraging outcome of a treatment approach to incorporate
into the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!
So what can our Groton chiropractic patients do
to limit their back pain and its effect on their lives?
Sleep. Keep active. Get to
their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain
sufferers listed that more sleep, less sedentariness,
and increased moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was
beneficial. The authors shared an example of how swapping 30
minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep decreased
low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is vital!
(4) So too is a visit to the Groton chiropractor for spinal
manipulation as it is listed in the recommendations
by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having
good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain along with
exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is experienced in providing
gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, designing
a simple exercise plan, and recommending
therapy and/or more advance rehab as necessary or wanted.
