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 a good diet 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.

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.
