Guidelines. There are guidelines for everything!
This post discusses some of the newer
guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other
healthcare providers to boost the healing of San Jose back
pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a primary part of back
pain prevention as well as management that all providers encourage
and all providers are concerned are not
always carried out. Chiropractors like your own
at Chiropractic Solutions are health promoters and work to do that in the kindest,
most supportive way! Let us work
together to get you better.
GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Quality in healthcare delivery is talked
about so much. Providers and
patients want the best quality care possible in
delivering care and getting care. Interprofessional
collaboration is on the top of the list when researchers
evaluate systems for the care of back pain like appropriate
use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also assembled 70 quality markers for chiropractic
delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take
into consideration patient worries and higher
clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity certainly is a part
of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for San Jose pain relief.
BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN
In a recent survey, chiropractors reported
that the biggest concern they held in treating back
pain patients was patient follow through (coming to appointments, doing exercises, following at-home
instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors reported
that they had a positive opinion about healthier patient
lifestyles. These chiropractors also reported that they were actively
engaged in promoting physical activity, recommending
exercises to patients for their particular issue, asking
how the exercises are going, and advising patients in the
proper technique to do exercises as well as benefit that comes from exercising. (4) One way that patients seem
to follow through more positively and be more willing to do
physical activity is the use of a mobile application. Apps
that are build built around reported pain, pain intensity, and app features
like audio explanation and animation of each exercise are well received. (5) Doing the right exercises in the right way typically
brings about the rightfully desired outcome.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
Core stabilization exercises are usually
recommended to back pain patients. A new study that incorporated diaphragmatic breathing exercises found many advantages
for chronic low back pain patients: enhanced muscle activity, chest
expansion, quality of sleep, improved disability and physical activity
and pain scores, less fear avoidance, and better
physical activity, among others. (6) As a partner on
your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Chiropractic Solutions feels a duty
to encourage physical activity so that you can manage your own
health a bit more. Our younger back pain and neck pain sufferers benefit.
Our older adults with aches and pains and/or San Jose back
pain and/or neck pain benefit, too!
