The Value of Sandy Springs Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you define that? Do you embrace it? Do you know what behaviors are healthy? Cross Chiropractic Center is all about healthy living. Cross Chiropractic Center sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Sandy Springs chiropractic patients can expect their Sandy Springs chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them cope with current spine pain issues but also ward off future episodes of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best prevented.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, don’t they? A new study proved that men who took advantage of more of these healthy choices had decreased risk of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is another favorable healthy behavior. This plus the other behaviors are shown to reduce the risk of having long term upsetting low back pain in women and even potentially better the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Taking part in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program improves the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Using a lumbar support orthosis increases postural control when standing on unstable ground.  This may be notably helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unsteady. (4) Cross Chiropractic Center works with our Sandy Springs back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues encourages more healthy behaviors. When patients are given the opportunity to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were less than if they sought care from their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access results in a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief found that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, how close they were to the doctor’s office, and doctor’s qualifications prompted their choice.
