Auburn 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 Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. and fellow back pain healthcare practitioners hear all the time. When in pain, we all just want it to stop in the least effort required 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. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. urges our Auburn back pain patients and neck pain patients to take part in their back pain relief process. It makes a difference. It may well alter your life for the better. Many Auburn chiropractic patients have experienced this.


Remarkably up to 25% of back pain patients in a new study were not actively involved in their spine care treatment plan. Research is filled with studies emphasizing the importance 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 reduced patients’ participation in their own care, researchers created a distinctive plan to address these issues and increase the patients’ understanding and participation via text reminders, exercises, lifestyle changes, webinars, videos, paper educational materials and more. (1) One study found that a mix of approaches to drop disability and work absenteeism was cost effective though no one particular intervention stood out over others. (2) Like these researchers, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. tries to do anything possible to help our Auburn back pain and neck pain patients!


This may be a unique helpful intervention for certain patients: whole-body electromyostimulation. It dropped nonspecific chronic low back pain equally as well as back-strengthening exercise protocols. When fear of movement and functional limitations due to back pain are a part of the problem, whole body electrical stimulation improved patients’ strength and stabilization in a timely fashion, reducing pain intensity and enhancing trunk flexors. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. shares such alternatives to help our patients.


Have you heard “There’s an app for that!”? Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is certain you have! Not surprising45 in today’s app-crazy world that there is an app in the works 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 baseline, 6 weeks, 3, 6, and 9 months for nonspecific low back pain. From this research data, researchers plan to fill the app with tips and exercises that have worked for others experiencing 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) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. looks forward to saying “There is an app for that!"
