Healthy living. How do you define that? Do you embrace it? What are healthy living behaviors? Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is all about healthy living. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Augusta chiropractic patients can expect their Augusta chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them deal with current spine pain issues but also avent future bouts of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best avoided.
What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, don’t they? A recent study proved that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had decreased risk of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Eating fruit and vegetables is an additional favorable healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors appeared to decrease the possibility of having long term upsetting low back pain in women and even potentially improve the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Participating in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program improves the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Using a lumbar support belt improves postural control when standing on unstable ground. This may be particularly helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unstable. (4) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic works with our Augusta back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.
Choice of care for health care issues results in more healthy behaviors. When patients are given the opportunity to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were lower than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access makes a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief reports that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network endorsements, geographical proximity, and doctor’s qualifications influenced their choice.
