The GLOBAL Role of Chiropractic for Back Pain
Now is the time for chiropractic! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is thrilled to offer chiropractic services in Augusta and be a part of this time in healthcare. Lancet, one of the leading medical journals, published a series of articles on the sad state that healthcare systems around the globe are managing low back pain. Back pain is an enormous problem universally and getting worse. And chiropractic is “perfectly placed to be a major player in providing a part of the solution to the global challenge of low back” as long as its providers put into practice guidelines (like your chiropractor strives to do!) to not order excessive x-rays, follow evidence-based care clinical practice guidelines, and keep abreast of the latest research (and even participating in research when able!). Chiropractic is recognized for its reputation in caring for back pain. It needs to find its way into mainstream healthcare to take care of more back pain and neck pain sufferers non-pharmacologically and non-surgically. (1) The World Federation of Chiropractic is developing toolkits for chiropractors to participate more with public health communities and be of greater service to patients and communities within the health system as valued partners for their health and well-being. (2) Your Augusta chiropractor at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic appreciates this sponsorship and vision from a world chiropractic organization as that is just what this Augusta chiropractic practice of Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic strives to do here in Augusta.
Check out this PODCAST with Dr. Christophe Dean on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about how he incorporates Cox® Technic into his Augusta patient care to help decrease back pain.
TIP OF THE MONTH: Wear a Back Support
Low back pain patients at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic may benefit from wearing a lumbar back belt. New research reveals that a lumbar support belt doesn’t certainly cause muscle weakness but rather improves walking distance ability for spinal stenosis patients with intermittent claudication, decreases pain and fear of pain, decreases use of pain medications, and strengthens muscle strength, flexibility, and activities of daily living. (3-10) Great benefits! Your chiropractor cautiously considers when and if to use of back braces for each individual Augusta back pain patient as he or she heals with Augusta chiropractic care, understanding the advantages back braces may give along the way.
