Regular Augusta chiropractic care. A good idea? Yes! Consider other helpful regular care concepts: Endocrinologists recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars. Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times 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 a 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 nourish the body properly. 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 daily once the pain is under control, but on a regular schedule to prevent spine pain – back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic treats many Augusta chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Augusta 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 experience at least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. One in 3 of us experiences back pain this moment. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic often advises 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 ignored. Your spine will appreciate a solid treatment plan to get rid of the pain as well as a plan to maintain its mobility and health.
CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS
That is where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Certainly our Augusta chiropractic patients realize that chiropractic care alleviates back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand that they do not want to suffer with that pain again! While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain won’t 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 recent study titled the Nordic Maintenance Care Program stated that such chiropractic maintenance care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that restrained activities and improved 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, does not avert new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to decrease life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with recurrent and persistent low back pain.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care helped his veteran patient contain his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
