"Why do I need on-going chiropractic
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Fernandina Beach chiropractor,
just treat it and put a stop to the pain altogether so it doesn't come back?"
This is not a bizarre
question, and it's also very
logical. The answer is logically
simple, too, though two-fold: we are born with spinal
issues or we develop them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with spinal issues that will
be with us all life through. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are distinctive to one's
own spine. There is no route to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is our own. So we must figure
out how to respect our spines so as to not trigger
pain. Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic can perform
the spinal manipulation intended to alleviate
your specific spinal condition. Then, you'll want to think
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You do not want to compromise your now-pain-relieved
spine further or again.
- nutritional needs - Amelia Chiropractic Clinic will share
some nutrition ideas to improve
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening prerequisites - Our simple exercises do not take long but will
take you and your spine far in keeping it strong!
It is in these continued spine problems that
we - you and your Fernandina Beach chiropractor - must
collaborate for the most welcome
outcome, even coming in for occasional spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us hurt our backs. We do
things that damage the seemingly healthiest
of spines: tumbling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting too much weight. You get the idea - things
we do in everyday activities of daily living may harm
us, and we end up with back pain. So, when we hurt the spine to the
level that we cause intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now have a spinal weakness which may become the weak link
in our spinal health.
We all must nurture a strong,
well-aligned spine and utilize the spine with the respect and knowledge of
dodging those activities
that could trigger pain.
How? You and your Fernandina Beach chiropractor see
each other every now and then.
A recurring visit to Amelia Chiropractic Clinic for spinal alignment
and review of healthy spine maintenance is helpful. Post-continued
spinal manipulation after the original
pain-relieving care is even proposed as a way to maintain
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is far better than
having to go through repeated treatment of Fernandina Beach
back pain. It averts pain and suffering in the
present and decreases the chance of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A recent report described the
reality of low back pain being a major cause of disability around
the world. It is persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not known to just go away and
never return. Fortunately, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been reported as
effective in reducing painful days for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was recorded to be
of high value described such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment worried
others. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain diminishes.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is no
fun. Relief is possible with
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic. Just understand that there is a logical need
and even benefit for occasional spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine problems.
