You have a bout of back pain – first,
second, tenth. Are you curious about what that means going
forward? Certainly, you are! The trajectory – researchers’ term
for the path of back pain – of the San Jose back pain
experience is individual to each, but there are issues
that may help foretell that course. Chiropractic Solutions shares
some input on the influence of lifestyle and
WHAT TO DO – Chiropractic
A new article’s findings make seeking chiropractic care
logical to contain the course of back pain. Patients
undergoing chiropractic care for their chronic (over 3 months) and acute (under a month) low back pain who
reported “much better” or “better” at one week of care were 4 to 5 times more
likely to report improvement at 30 days and 90 days of care.
More specifically, acute back pain patients who reported experiencing
more severe pain and disability at the start of care
recovered more quickly. The majority of
patients with lumbar radicular leg pain improved. Both chronic and acute back pain patients reported good outcomes. (1)
Another study of the interdisciplinary care (spine
surgeons/chiropractors in a university hospital) of chronic back pain patients recorded
that almost half of the chronic low back pain patients treated with
chiropractic conservative care reported clinically relevant improvement. (2) Chiropractic Solutions
sees even greater outcomes with our particular form
of chiropractic care, Cox® Technic!
WHAT TO DO – More Chiropractic
So why halt chiropractic
care with pain relief? Researchers documented that
low back pain patients who have chiropractic maintenance
care – chiropractic treatments on a regular basis regardless of their symptoms – had fewer
days of low back pain that limited their activities of daily living compared
with getting treatment only when a new low back pain episode arose. (3) More San Jose
chiropractic care on a regular basis seems positive.
WHAT TO DO – More Activity
More is not always better, but some kinds of
more are better, like chiropractic and activity. A low back pain sufferer
with a lifetime history of back pain may want to try engaging
in more moderate to vigorous physical activity since it
was found to reduce the odds of extending
severe low back pain over the following year. (4) Chiropractic Solutions knows
none of us back pain sufferers enjoys hearing that,
but it’s the finding of a study. More intense exercise
was shown beneficial. Know too that a sedentary lifestyle –
work and/or pleasure time – moderately raises the risk
of low back pain. (5) There is a middle ground! Let us at
Chiropractic Solutions discover that with you, the spot that prevents
back pain and keeps you active as you want to be.
