BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
Suggestions and recommendations run the gamut.
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic hears about them all the time. Everyone from
friends, family members, researchers, doctors, etc., have ideas
and stories. In light of the wide range of back
pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization
of back pain care - exercise, spinal manipulation and
opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers
most favorably. (1) We concur. We study
the research and mix it with our
experience when developing a personalized treatment
plan for our back pain patients. With the predicted growth of low
back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people around the world
to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug,
non-surgical choices for back pain are welcome, particularly
ones that are tested and verified as being beneficial. A new
paper was just published regarding
the care for one type of back pain - continued back pain after
back surgery also called failed back surgery syndrome
(FBSS) - that often develops into continued or increased opioid
pain medication use. The study found
that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression
Manipulation reported decreased or discontinued
use of opioids during an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That’s an
encouraging outcome of a treatment approach to incorporate
into the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!
So what can our McHenry chiropractic patients do
to control their back pain and its effect on their lives?
Sleep. Keep active. Get to
their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain
sufferers noted that additional sleep, less sedentariness,
and more moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was
beneficial. The authors described an example of how swapping 30
minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep decreased
low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is important!
(4) So too is a visit to the McHenry chiropractor for spinal
manipulation as recommended in the guidelines published
by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having
good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain together with
exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is experienced in providing
gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, designing
an easy exercise plan, and recommending
therapy and/or more advance rehab as needed or desired.
