The Value of Ashburn Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you describe that? Do you embrace it? What are healthy living behaviors? Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is all for healthy living. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Ashburn chiropractic patients can expect their Ashburn chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them cope with exisiting spine pain issues but also ward off future episodes of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best prevented.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, don’t they? A new study proved that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had decreased possibility of long duration low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is another favorable healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors are shown to lessen the risk of developing long term disturbing low back pain in women and even potentially improve the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Taking part in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program improves the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Using a lumbar support orthosis improves postural control when standing on unstable ground.  This may be especially helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unstable. (4) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn works with our Ashburn back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues generates more healthy behaviors. When patients are able to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were less than if they sought care from their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access results in a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief found that their familiarity with the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, geographical proximity, and doctor’s qualifications prompted their choice.
