Continued McHenry Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain Management

Regular McHenry chiropractic care. A helpful idea? Yep! Consider other good regular care ideas: Endocrinologists recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars. Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings twice annually to keep plaque away. Cardiologists at the American Heart Association recommend exercising at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity a week to have an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 30 minutes a day five days a week to keep the body in tune.  Nutritionists recommend a good diet daily: fruits, veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to nourish the body well. Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2) Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not necessarily daily once the pain is under control, but on a regular schedule to keep in check spine pain – back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Spengel Chiropractic treats many McHenry chiropractic patients on a regular basis, McHenry chiropractic patients who choose such care to maintain healthy and pain-free spines as best they can.

BACK PAIN STATS

80% of us humans will have no less than one episode of back pain in our lifetime. One in 3 of us has back pain right now. Back pain is known to wax and wane not go away forever. Spengel Chiropractic often informs patients that the existing episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If for no other reason, it is asking for care. It won’t be ignored. Your spine will be grateful for an effective treatment plan to end the pain as well as a plan to maintain its mobility and health.

CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS

That is where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Certainly our McHenry chiropractic patients know that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know that they do not want to suffer with such pain again! While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain won’t come back, keeping that pain at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile goal as is a goal to be able to do everyday activities as pain free and worry free as possible. A recent study called the Nordic Maintenance Care Program found that such chiropractic maintenance care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced activities and increased the number of pain free weeks between episodes. These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not prevent new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to decrease life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have recurrent and persistent low back pain.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Joel Dixon  on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care helped his veteran patient control his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
