La Grande Back Pain Care and Exercise Guidelines

Guidelines. There are guidelines everywhere! This post discusses some of the newer guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other healthcare providers to enhance the healing of La Grande back pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a primary part of back pain prevention alongside management that all providers encourage and all providers worry aren’t always executed. Chiropractors like your own at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC are health promoters and work to do that in the kindest, most helpful way! Let us work together to get you better.


Quality in healthcare delivery is talked about so much. Providers and patients want the best quality care possible in delivering care and receiving care. Interprofessional collaboration is on the top of the list when researchers assess systems for the care of back pain like suitable use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also put together 70 quality values for chiropractic delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take into account patient worries and higher clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity surely is a component of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for La Grande pain relief.


In a recent survey, chiropractors reported that the biggest concern they had in managing back pain patients was patient follow through (exercises, appointments, 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 shared that they were actively engaged in promoting physical activity, suggesting exercises to patients for their particular condition, inquiring how the exercises are going, and counseling patients in the proper way to do exercises as well as value of doing exercises. (4) One way that patients seem to respond more positively and be more willing to do physical activity is using a mobile app. Such apps help oversee low back and neck pain patients when they are built around reported pain, pain intensity, and structure of the app like audio explanation and animation of each exercise. (5)  Doing the right exercises in the right way typically brings about the rightfully desired outcome.


Core stabilization exercises are commonly recommended to back pain patients. A new study that added in diaphragmatic breathing exercises noted many benefits for chronic low back pain patients: improved muscle activity, chest expansion, quality of sleep, improved disability and physical activity and pain scores, less fear avoidance, and increased physical activity, among others. (6) As a partner on your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC feels a duty to encourage physical activity so that you can take care of you. Our younger back pain and neck pain sufferers benefit. Our older adults with aches and pains and/or La Grande back pain and/or neck pain benefit, too!
