How Long Do I Have to See The Chiropractor?

"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 spondylolisthesistransitional 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 deliver the spinal manipulation intended to alleviate your specific spinal condition. Then, you'll want to think about its 

  • 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 requirements - Our simple exercises do not take long but will take you and your spine far in keeping it strong!

It is in these on-going 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 discarthritis, 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. (1)
