Fernandina Beach Back Pain Relief Includes Self-Management

“Just give me something to stop the pain.” or “Just do something so I stop hurting.” are just two comments Amelia Chiropractic Clinic and fellow back pain healthcare practitioners hear all the time. When in pain, we all just want it to stop in the easiest and fastest way possible. This is not always possible though. We all need to look at our pain and make friends with it to some extent. We have to see it for what it is. Temporary. Unwelcome. Disruptive. But manageable many times when engaged. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic encourages our Fernandina Beach back pain patients and neck pain patients to participate in their back pain relief process. It can make a difference. It may perhaps even alter your life for the better. Many Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients have experienced this.


Amazingly up to 25% of back pain patients in a new study weren’t actively involved in their spine care treatment plan. Research is filled with studies highlighting the significance of patient-involvement in treatment of spine pain. What kept such patients participating? In researcher-ease, environmental context and resources, emotion, memory/attention/decision-making, and behavioural regulation did. Knowing that these things were the interfering offending factors that interfered with patients’ participation in their own care, researchers made a distinctive plan to deal with these issues and raise the patients’ understanding and participation via text reminders, exercises, lifestyle changes, webinars, videos, paper educational materials and more. (1) One study found that a variety of approaches to drop disability and work absenteeism was cost effective though no one particular intervention stood out over others. (2) Like these researchers, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic tries to do whatever it takes to help our Fernandina Beach back pain and neck pain patients!


This may be a unique helpful intervention for certain patients: whole-body electromyostimulation. It reduced nonspecific chronic low back pain just as well as back-strengthening exercise protocols. When fear of movement and functional limitations because of back pain play a role, whole body electrical stimulation improved patients’ strength and stabilization in good time, reducing pain intensity and improving trunk flexors. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic shares such alternatives to help our patients.


Ever heard the saying “There’s an app for that!”? Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is positive you have! Not alarming in today’s app-crazy world that there is an app in development to help you keep track of self-management tasks like exercise, sleep, etc. For the “selfBACK” app, researchers are now gathering data on the effectiveness of various interventions at various times for nonspecific low back pain. From this data collection, researchers will fill the app with tips and exercises that have benefited others with similar issues. Each patient’s app will then be personalized for self-management of back pain and other musculoskeletal issues based on what others with similar conditions reported helpful and relieving. (4) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic looks forward to saying “There's an app for that!" Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows that some of our Fernandina Beach back pain patients will love this!
