Quality of life. That’s the important
factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest.
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is honored to work with
Auburn chiropractic patients to boost their chances
of aging well and enjoying the best quality of life
possible. Auburn back pain patients appreciate knowing what factors might adversely affect
their quality of life and their options to diminish 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 happen in mid-life and
older life, making life not very pleasant.
Researchers found factors that seem to decrease
the odds of getting these conditions.
What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Fine spinal alignment.
Greater back muscle strength. No trouble with locomotion syndrome –
trouble with switching positions. Good 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 notoriously 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 manytimes a part
of the chiropractic treatment plan for Auburn back pain patients.
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows that back pain sufferers have many healthcare
forms of care from which to choose and shares what the
researchers say about the options.
To get the most out of an option, the
circumstances must be optimal. Back
surgery may not always be the best option for every Auburn
back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery doesn’t always result in the desired outcome, especially for
patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability
that accompany it stayed around for 29% to 42%
of patients who reportedly 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 Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is all about Cox®
Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to achieve
the sought after pain reduction outcome.
Auburn 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. Given that military personnel are people like the rest of us, this
study’s results will be interesting! Another study that added
chiropractic - spinal
manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic
procedures such as 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) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. collects these positive
studies to share with our Auburn back pain patients.
