McHenry Back Pain Care and Exercise Guidelines

Guidelines. There are guidelines everywhere! This post talks about some of the more recent guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other healthcare providers to enhance the healing of McHenry back pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a core part of back pain prevention as well as management that all providers support and all providers worry aren’t always carried out. Chiropractors like your own at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic are health promoters and work to do that in the kindest, most caring way! Let’s work together to get you better.


Quality in healthcare delivery is talked about so much. Providers and patients want 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 proper use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also assembled 70 quality markers for chiropractic delivery that are standardized as well as evidence-based that take into consideration patient worries and enhanced clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity certainly is a component of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for McHenry pain relief.


In a recent survey, chiropractors conveyed that the biggest concern they held in managing back pain patients was patient follow through (exercises, appointments, at-home recommendations, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors reported that they were optimistic about healthier patient lifestyles. These chiropractors also shared that they were actively engaged in promoting physical activity, recommending exercises to patients for their particular issue, asking how the exercises are going, and counseling patients in the proper way to do exercises as well as value of doing exercises. (4) One way that patients seem to follow through more positively and be more willing to do physical activity is using a mobile application. Such apps help oversee low back and neck pain patients when they are built around reported pain, pain intensity, and structure of the app like audio explanation and animation of each exercise. (5)  Doing the right exercises in the right way typically brings about the rightfully desired outcome.


Core stabilization exercises are commonly recommended to back pain patients. One new study that incorporated diaphragmatic breathing exercises recorded many benefits for chronic low back pain patients: improved muscle activity, chest expansion, quality of sleep, improved disability and physical activity and pain scores, decreased fear avoidance, and increased physical activity, among others. (6) As a part of your healthcare team, your chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic feels a responsibility to encourage physical activity so that you can take care of you. Our younger McHenry back pain and neck pain sufferers get positive results. Our older adults who have aches and pains and/or back pain and/or neck pain get positive results, too!
