Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

Quality of life. That’s the central factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is privileged to work with Manchester chiropractic patients to increase their chances of aging well and relishing the best quality of life possible. Manchester back pain patients value knowing what factors might adversely affect their quality of life and their options to lessen 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 negatively impact quality of life. These conditions often happen in mid-life and older life, rendering life not very enjoyable. Researchers reported on factors that seem to decrease the odds of suffering with these problems. What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Good spinal alignment. Greater back muscle strength. No issue with locomotion syndrome – difficulty moving from one position to another, one place to another. 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 important factors in motor control functions like balance, efforts to strengthen these explicitly are important to attempt to reverse such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is often a part of the chiropractic treatment plan for Manchester back pain patients. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows 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 best option for every Manchester back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery doesn’t always produce fully the desired outcome, especially for patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability that accompany it lingered for 29% to 42% of patients who supposedly had minimal to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain propose non-surgical options like spinal manipulation first. Chiropractic care is all about spinal manipulation. Chiropractic care at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is all about Cox® Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to achieve the desired pain reduction outcome.

Manchester CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES

Chiropractic researchers are presently studying the particular effects of chiropractic care’s spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance improvement in patients with low back pain, particularly active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were associated with back pain. (4) Low back pain is a common cause of disability in the military. Seeing as how military personnel are people like the rest of us, this study’s results will be interesting! In another study, the addition of chiropractic care - spinal manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic approaches like rehabilitative exercise, cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – enhanced short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty military. (5) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries collects these positive studies to share with our Manchester back pain patients.
