Quality of life. That is the important
factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest.
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is privileged to work with
Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients to enhance their chances
of aging well and relishing the best quality of life
possible. Fernandina Beach back pain patients appreciate knowing what factors might negatively impact
their quality of life and their options to reduce the
influence of those factors.
FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE
Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis,
disc degeneration and related back pain lower
quality of life. These conditions often arise in mid-life and
older life, making life not very enjoyable.
Researchers found factors that seem to reduce
the odds of getting these problems.
What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Good spinal alignment.
Greater back muscle strength. No trouble with locomotion syndrome –
trouble with switching positions. Stable body balance. With such good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can enjoy
a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are known
to be key issues in motor control functions
like balance, attempts to strengthen these particularly
are important to try to reverse
such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is often a part
of the chiropractic treatment plan for Fernandina Beach back pain patients.
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic realizes that back pain sufferers have many healthcare
forms of care from which to pick and shares what the
researchers say about such options.
To get the most out of an option, the
circumstances must be optimal. Back
surgery may not always be the choice option for every Fernandina Beach
back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery doesn’t always result in the desired outcome, particularly for
patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability
that come with it stayed around for 29% to 42%
of patients who supposedly experienced minimal
to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain recommend
non-surgical options like spinal manipulation first.
Chiropractic care incorporates spinal manipulation.
Chiropractic care at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic incorporates Cox®
Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to get
the desired pain reduction outcome.
Fernandina Beach CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES
Chiropractic researchers are presently looking
into the particular effects of chiropractic care’s
spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance better
outcomes in patients with low back pain, particularly
active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were related to back pain. (4) Low back pain is a frequent
reason for disability in the military. Seeing as
how military personnel are people like us all, this
study’s findings will be interesting! Another study that added
chiropractic - spinal
manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic
procedures like rehabilitative exercise,
cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical
care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – improved
short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty
military. (5) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic collects these positive
studies to share with our Fernandina Beach back pain patients.
