GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Quality in healthcare delivery is discussed a lot. Providers and patients desire the highest quality care possible in delivering care and receiving care. Interprofessional collaboration is on the top of the list when researchers analyze systems for the care of back pain like suitable use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also put together 70 quality values for chiropractic delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take into account patient concerns and enhanced clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity surely is a part of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Augusta pain relief.
BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN
In a recent survey, chiropractors conveyed that the biggest concern they held in treating back pain patients was patient follow through (exercises, appointments, at-home instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors reported that they had a positive opinion about healthier patient lifestyles. These chiropractors also reported that they were actively involved in promoting physical activity, recommending exercises to patients for their particular issue, asking how the exercises are going, and counseling patients in the proper technique to do exercises as well as benefit that comes from exercising. (4) One way that patients seem to follow through more positively and be more willing to do physical activity is the use of a mobile app. Apps that are build built around reported pain, pain intensity, and app features like audio explanation and animation of each exercise are well received. (5) Doing the right exercises in the right way is the most effective.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
Core stabilization exercises are commonly recommended to back pain patients. A new study that added in diaphragmatic breathing exercises found many advantages for chronic low back pain patients: improved muscle activity, chest expansion, quality of sleep, improved disability and physical activity and pain scores, reduced fear avoidance, and higher physical activity, among others.
