BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
Suggestions and recommendations run the gamut.
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC hears about them all the time. Everyone from
friends, family members, researchers, doctors, others, have opinions
and stories. In light of the inconsistency of back
pain care recommendations, researchers suggest that the standardization
of care for back pain - exercise, spinal manipulation and
opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers
optimally. (1) We concur. We review
the research and combine it with our
experience when developing an individualized treatment
plan for our back pain patients. With the predicted growth of low
back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people around the world
to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug,
non-surgical options for back pain are welcome, especially
ones that are tried and documented
as beneficial. A a newly published paper regarding
the care for a specific type of back pain - continued back pain after
back surgery also called failed back surgery syndrome
(FBSS) - that often develops into continued or increased opioid
pain medication use. The study documented
that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression
Manipulation reported reduction or discontinuation of opioid use during an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That is a positive outcome of a treatment approach to include in the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!
So what can our La Grande chiropractic patients do
to control their back pain and its effect on their lives?
Sleep. Keep active. Get to
their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain
sufferers listed that additional sleep, less sedentariness,
and increased moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was
beneficial. The authors shared an example of how swapping 30
minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep decreased
low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is important!
(4) So too is a visit to the La Grande chiropractor for spinal
manipulation as it is listed in the recommendations
by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having
good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain together with
exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is experienced in providing
gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, designing
a simple exercise plan, and recommending
therapy and/or more advance rehab as needed or wanted.
