Spinal Care Clinic Shares Your 2024 Goal of Relief of Back Pain

A new year. A new goal. We all set ourselves up for something new in a new year. For Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers, a decrease in back pain is a logical goal with Spinal Care Clinic by your side. Back pain sufferers are certainly not alone, and research keeps producing and publishing hopeful reports of what works so that both the back pain sufferer and the chiropractor - and other involved healthcare providers – deliver the optimal care for the optimal outcome: less back pain. Start 2024 off right with Spinal Care Clinic’s help for back pain relief! We have lots of effective chiropractic services


They run the gamut. Spinal Care Clinic hears about them all the time. Everyone from friends, family members, researchers, doctors, others, have thoughts and stories. In light of the inconsistency of back pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization of back pain care - exercise, spinal manipulation and opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers most. (1) We agree. We read the research and mix it with our clinical experience to develop a personalized treatment plan for our back pain patients. With the expected growth of low back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people globally to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug, non-surgical choices for back pain are welcome, particularly ones that are tried and documented to be beneficial.  A new paper was just published 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 results in continued or increased opioid pain medication use.  The study stated 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 incorporate into the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!


So what can our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients do to control their back pain and its impact on their lives? Sleep. Keep active. Get to their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain sufferers noted that additional sleep, less sedentariness, and more 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 vital! (4) So too is a visit to the Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor for spinal manipulation as recommended in the guidelines published by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain along with exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Spinal Care Clinic is experienced in delivering gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, creating a simple exercise plan, and referring out for therapy and/or more advance rehab as necessary or wanted. Trust us to help! Our Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients are in good hands.
