Ashburn Back Pain Care and Exercise Guidelines

Guidelines. There are guidelines everywhere! This post talks about some of the more recent guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other healthcare providers to boost the healing of Ashburn back pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a primary part of back pain prevention as well as management that all providers encourage and all providers are worried are not always executed. Chiropractors like your own at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn are health promoters and work to do that in the kindest, most supportive way! Let us work together to get you better.


Quality in healthcare delivery is discussed a lot. Providers and patients want the highest quality care possible in delivering care and receiving care. Interprofessional collaboration rises to the top when researchers evaluate systems for the care of back pain like proper use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also assembled 70 quality indicators for chiropractic delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take into consideration patient worries and higher clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity surely is a component of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Ashburn pain relief.


In a recent survey, chiropractors reported that the biggest concern they had in treating back pain patients was patient follow through (making appointments, doing exercises, following at-home instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors reported that they had a positive opinion about healthier patient lifestyles. These chiropractors also reported that they were actively engaged in promoting physical activity, suggesting exercises to patients for their particular condition, asking how the exercises are going, and advising patients in the proper manner to do exercises as well as benefit that comes from exercising. (4) One way that patients seem to follow through more positively and be more willing to do physical activity is the use of a mobile application. Apps that are build built around reported pain, pain intensity, and app features like audio explanation and animation of each exercise are well received. (5)  Doing the right exercises in the right way typically brings about the rightfully desired outcome.


Core stabilization exercises are usually recommended to back pain patients. One new study that incorporated diaphragmatic breathing exercises recorded many benefits for chronic low back pain patients: improved muscle activity, chest expansion, quality of sleep, enhanced disability and physical activity and pain scores, decreased fear avoidance, and higher physical activity, and more. (6) As a part of your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn feels a responsibility to encourage physical activity so that you can manage your own health a bit more. Our younger back pain and neck pain sufferers benefit. Our older adults with aches and pains and/or Ashburn back pain and/or neck pain benefit, too!
