Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

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.

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 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.
