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.
GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
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.
BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN
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.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
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
