BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
Suggestions and recommendations run the gamut. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic knows. Everyone from friends, family members, researchers, doctors, etc., have opinions and stories. In light of the wide range of back pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization of back pain care - exercise, spinal manipulation and opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers most. (1) We concur. We read the research and combine it with our clinical experience to develop a personalized treatment plan for our back pain patients. With the expected 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 options for back pain are welcome, particularly ones that are tried and verified as being beneficial. A a newly published paper regarding the care for one type of back pain - continued back pain after back surgery also called failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) - that often results in continued or increased opioid pain medication use. The study documented that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression Manipulation reported decreased or discontinued use of opioids 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 Augusta chiropractic patients do to limit their back pain and its effect on their lives? Sleep. Keep active. Makes their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain sufferers noted that additional 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 lessened low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is important! (4) So too is a visit to the Augusta 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 together with exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic 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 desired.
