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.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

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.

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.
