Cross Chiropractic Center Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

Quality of life. That is the central factor in aging well and taking pleasure in life to its fullest. Cross Chiropractic Center is honored to work with Sandy Springs chiropractic patients to boost their chances of aging well and relishing the best quality of life possible. Sandy Springs back pain patients appreciate knowing what factors might negatively affect their quality of life and their options to reduce the influence of those factors.

FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE

Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis, disc degeneration and related back pain negatively impact quality of life. These conditions often happen in mid-life and older life, rendering life not very enjoyable. Researchers reported on factors that seem to reduce the odds of getting these problems. What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Fine spinal alignment. Greater back muscle strength. No trouble with locomotion syndrome – trouble with switching positions. Stable body balance. With such good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can expect a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are known to be important issues in motor control functions like balance, attempts to strengthen these explicitly are important to try to turn around such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is often a part of the chiropractic treatment plan for Sandy Springs back pain patients. Cross Chiropractic Center knows that back pain sufferers have many healthcare forms of care from which to pick and shares what the researchers say about the options.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

To benefit most out of an option, the circumstances must be optimal.  Back surgery may not always be the choice option for every Sandy Springs back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery does not always result in the desired outcome, particularly for patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability that come with it stayed around for 29% to 42% of patients who supposedly experienced minimal to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain propose non-surgical options like spinal manipulation first. Chiropractic care is all about spinal manipulation. Chiropractic care at Cross Chiropractic Center is all about Cox® Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to achieve the sought after pain reduction outcome.

Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES

Chiropractic researchers are presently studying the particular effects of chiropractic care’s spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance better outcomes in patients with low back pain, particularly active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were associated with back pain. (4) Low back pain is a common cause of disability in the military. Seeing as how military personnel are people like us all, this study’s findings will be interesting! In another study, the addition of chiropractic care - spinal manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic approaches like rehabilitative exercise, cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – enhanced short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty military. (5) Cross Chiropractic Center gathers these helpful studies to share with our Sandy Springs back pain patients.
