Regular Sandy Springs chiropractic care. A good
idea? Yep! Consider other helpful regular care ideas: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times a
year to keep plaque at bay. Cardiologists at the American Heart
Association recommend doing at least 150 minutes of
moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity each week to make
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 a day: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to feed 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 regularly to prevent spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Cross Chiropractic Center cares for
many Sandy Springs chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Sandy Springs
chiropractic patients who choose such care to keep their spines as healthy and pain-free as possible.
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 this moment. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
Cross Chiropractic Center often informs patients that the current
episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is asking for care. It will not
be disregarded. Your spine will value
an effective treatment plan to end the pain as
well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.
CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS
That’s where regular chiropractic care comes
into play. Certainly our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients know
that chiropractic care lessens back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand
that they don’t want to suffer with such pain again!
While there is no assurance that back pain or neck pain will
not come back, preventing pain and/or its return to as mild as possible is a worthy
goal as is a goal to be able to do everyday activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A new study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program found that such chiropractic maintenance
care decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that limited
activities and boosted 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, doesn’t prevent
new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to decrease
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Sandy Springs back
pain patients, Cross Chiropractic Center is here.
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 live
his life the way he wants to live it.
