"Why do I need on-going chiropractic
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Millville chiropractor,
just treat it and put a stop to the pain altogether so it doesn't come back?"
This is not an atypical
question, and it's also very
logical. The answer is logically
simple, too, though dual: we are born with spinal
issues or we acquire them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with spinal
conditions that will
be with us forever. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are distinctive to one's
own spine. There is no path to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is ours. So we must figure
out how to respect our spines so as to not cause
pain. Your Millville chiropractor at Wilson Family Chiropractic can perform
the spinal manipulation intended to relieve
your specific spinal condition. Then, you will want to consider its
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You don't want to compromise your now-pain-relieved
spine further or again.
- nutritional needs - Wilson Family Chiropractic will share
some nutrition ideas to bolster
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening requirements - Our simple exercises do not take long but will
take you and your spine far in keeping it strong!
It is in these on-going spine problems that
we - you and your Millville chiropractor - must
collaborate for the best
outcome, even coming in for periodic spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us hurt our backs. We do
things that injure the seemingly healthiest
of spines: falling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting too much weight. You get the picture - things
we do in our normal activities of daily living may hurt
us, and we wind up with back pain. So, when we hurt the spine to the
extent that we trigger intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now will contend
with a spinal weakness which may become the vulnerable link
in our spinal health.
We all must keep up a strong,
well-aligned spine and utilize the spine with the respect and knowledge of
staying away from those activities
that could trigger pain.
How? You and your Millville chiropractor see
each other every so often.
A recurring visit to Wilson Family Chiropractic for spinal alignment
and assessment of healthy spine maintenance is helpful. Post-continued
spinal manipulation after the original
pain-relieving care is even proposed as a way to chieve
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is much better than
having to go through repeated treatment of Millville
back pain. It averts pain and suffering in the
present and reduces the risk of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A new report described the
reality of low back pain being a major cause of disability globally. It is persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not known to just go away and
never return. Luckily, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been documented as
effective in reducing painful days for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was reported to be
of high value described such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment worried
others. (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain diminishes.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is disruptive. Aid is possible with
Wilson Family Chiropractic. Just understand that there is a logical necessity
and even benefit for occasional spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine problems.
