Manchester Back Pain Relief Includes Self-Management

“Just give me something to stop the pain.” or “Just do something so I don’t hurt.” are just two comments Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries and fellow back pain healthcare practitioners hear frequently. 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 can see it for what it is. Temporary. Unwelcome. Disruptive. But manageable many times when engaged. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries urges our Manchester back pain patients and neck pain patients to take part in their back pain relief process. It makes a difference. It may perhaps even alter your life for the better. Many Manchester chiropractic patients have experienced this.

SELF-MANAGEMENT BENEFITS

Remarkably up to 25% of back pain patients in a new study weren’t actively engaged in their spine care treatment plan. Research is ripe with papers highlighting the significance of patient-engagement with treatment of spine pain. What kept such patients involved? In researcher-ease, environmental context and resources, emotion, memory/attention/decision-making, and behavioural regulation did. Knowing that these things were the interfering culprits that interfered with patients’ participation in their own care, researchers made a distinctive plan to address these issues and improve the patients’ understanding and participation via text reminders, exercises, lifestyle changes, webinars, videos, paper educational materials and more. (1) One study discovered that a mix of approaches to lessen disability and work absenteeism was cost effective though no one particular intervention stood out over others. (2) Like these researchers, Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries tries to do anything possible to help our Manchester back pain and neck pain patients!

SPINE EXERCISES AND EMS

This may be a unique helpful intervention for certain patients: whole-body electromyostimulation. It reduced nonspecific chronic low back pain equally as well as back-strengthening exercise protocols. When fear of movement and functional limitations due to back pain play a role, whole body electrical stimulation improved patients’ strength and stabilization in good time, reducing pain intensity and enhancing trunk flexors.

SELF-MANAGEMENT APP

Have you heard “There’s an app for that!”? Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is positive you have! Not surprising45 in today’s app-crazy world that there is an app in the works to help you manage self-management tasks like exercise, sleep, etc. For the “selfBACK” app, researchers are currently gathering data on the usefulness of various interventions at various times for nonspecific low back pain. From this data collection, researchers plan to fill the app with tips and exercises that have worked for others with similar issues. Each patient’s app will then be customized for self-management of back pain and other musculoskeletal issues based on what others with similar conditions reported helpful and relieving.
