Millville Back Pain Relief Includes Self-Management

“Just give me something to stop the pain.” or “Just do something so I stop hurting.” are just two comments Wilson Family Chiropractic and fellow back pain healthcare practitioners commonly hear. When in pain, we all just want it to stop in the easiest and fastest way possible. This is not always possible though. We all need to look at our pain and make friends with it to some extent. We can see it for what it is. Temporary. Unwelcome. Disruptive. But manageable many times when engaged. Wilson Family Chiropractic encourages our Millville back pain patients and neck pain patients to take part in their back pain relief process. It can make a difference. It may well change your life for the better. Many Millville chiropractic patients have experienced this.

SELF-MANAGEMENT BENEFITS

Amazingly up to 25% of back pain patients in a new study were not actively involved in their spine care treatment plan. Research is filled with papers emphasizing the significance of patient-engagement with treatment of spine pain. What kept such patients involved? In researcher-ease, environmental context and resources, emotion, memory/attention/decision-making, and behavioural regulation did. Knowing that these things were the interfering culprits that interfered with patients’ participation in their own care, researchers made a distinctive plan to address these issues and improve the patients’ understanding and participation via text reminders, exercises, lifestyle changes, webinars, videos, paper educational materials and more. (1) One study discovered that a mix of approaches to drop disability and work absenteeism was cost effective though no one certain intervention stood out over others. (2) Like these researchers, Wilson Family Chiropractic tries to do whatever it takes to help our Millville back pain and neck pain patients!

SPINE EXERCISES AND EMS

This may be a unique helpful intervention for certain patients: whole-body electromyostimulation. It reduced nonspecific chronic low back pain just as well as back-strengthening exercise protocols. When fear of movement and functional limitations because of back pain play a role, whole body electrical stimulation helped fearful patients with their strength and stabilization in good time, decreasing pain intensity and enhancing trunk flexors. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic shares such options to help our patients.

SELF-MANAGEMENT APP

Have you heard “There is an app for that!”? Wilson Family Chiropractic is positive you have! Not alarming in today’s app-crazy world that there is an app in the works to help you keep track of self-management tasks like exercise, sleep, etc. For the “selfBACK” app, researchers are currently collecting data on the effectiveness of various interventions at various times for nonspecific low back pain. From this data collection, researchers will fill the app with tips and exercises that have benefited others with similar issues. Each patient’s app will then be personalized for self-management of back pain and other musculoskeletal issues based upon others with similar conditions reported helpful and relieving. (4) Wilson Family Chiropractic looks forward to saying “There's an app for that!" Wilson Family Chiropractic knows that some of our Millville back pain patients will love this!
