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.
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 as the first step.
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.
