BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
Suggestions and recommendations run the gamut.
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre knows. Everyone from
friends, family members, researchers, doctors, others, have ideas
and stories. In light of the inconsistency of back
pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization
of care for back pain - exercise, spinal manipulation and
opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers
most favorably. (1) We concur. We examin
the research and mingle it with our clinical experience to develop a personalized treatment
plan for our back pain patients. With the expected growth of low
back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people around the world
to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug,
non-surgical choices for back pain are welcome, especially
ones that are tried and documented
as beneficial. A new
paper was just published regarding
the care for one type of back pain - continued back pain after
back surgery known as failed back surgery syndrome
(FBSS) - that often results in continued or increased opioid
pain medication use. The study found
that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression
Manipulation described reduction or discontinuation of opioid use in the course
of an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That’s an
encouraging outcome of a treatment approach to incorporate
into the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!
So what can our Toronto chiropractic patients do
to limit their back pain and its effect on their lives?
Sleep. Keep active. Makes their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain
sufferers listed that additional sleep, less sedentariness,
and more moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was
beneficial. The authors shared an example of how swapping 30
minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep lessened
low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is important!
(4) So too is a visit to the Toronto chiropractor for spinal
manipulation as recommended in the guidelines published
by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having
good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain along with
exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is experienced in providing
gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, designing
a simple exercise plan, and referring out for
therapy and/or more advance rehab as necessary or wanted.
