Regular Ashburn chiropractic care. A good
idea? Yes! Consider other good regular care ideas: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly monitor their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times a
year to keep plaque away. Cardiologists at the American Heart
Association recommend performing at least 150 minutes of
moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity each week to make
an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 30
minutes a day five days a week to keep the body in tune. Nutritionists
recommend proper food intake a day: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to feed the body well.
Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College
of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2)
Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not
necessarily daily once the pain is under control, but on a
regular schedule to keep in check spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees
many Ashburn chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Ashburn
chiropractic patients who choose such care to keep their spines as healthy and pain-free as possible.
BACK PAIN STATS
80% of us humans will have at
least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of
us has back pain right now. Back pain is
known to come and go not go away forever.
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn often advises patients that the current
episode of back pain is getting your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is begging for care. It will not
be disregarded. Your spine will welcome
a solid treatment plan to end the pain as
well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.
CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS
That is where regular chiropractic care comes
into play. Surely our Ashburn chiropractic patients understand
that chiropractic care lessens back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand
that they do not want to suffer with such pain again!
While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain won’t come back, keeping that pain
at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile
goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A new study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program found that such chiropractic maintenance
care decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that restrained
activities and increased the number of pain free weeks
between episodes. These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations
of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not prevent
new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to decrease
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Ashburn back
pain patients, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is here.
