Augusta Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

May 16, 2017

Older back pain patients benefit from combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That is what new best practices guidelines recommend. Surprised? Of course not! Your Augusta chiropractor takes care of your spine, and you take care of your spine! Together, your Augusta chiropractor and you the Augusta back pain sufferer make a great spine care team. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is your local Augusta chiropractic care center where Augusta back pain patients meet their Augusta chiropractor to design a treatment plan to relieve pain as well as a plan to prevent future back pain.

A new high-level research review reiterates that spinal manipulation is safe for older adults suffering with back pain. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic appreciates this confirmation! How did they do this? The systematic review of all published articles over a 7 year period updated current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists participated in this best practices guidelinesreview and update. In the end, they agreed on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of back pain in older adults. They reinforced the present statement about how safe spinal manipulation is for these patients. The panel inserted two supplementary notes of advice that (1) chiropractors should suggest exercise to these older adult back pain patients and (2) manipulation and mobilization contribute to general positive outcomes beyond pain reduction. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic concurs! Augusta chiropractic patients often seek care to eliminate their back pain. Then, they discover Augusta chiropractic care that goes beyond just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to welcome a healthier way of life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation approach Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic employs is called Cox Technic. In research studies regarding this approach, it is known that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) react more favorably to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also showed that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – reacts better to exercise. (2) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic knows exercise is critical to manage back pain and prevent future back pain. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic urges all our Augusta chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.
