The Value of Burlington and Hamilton Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you define that? Do you live it? What are healthy living behaviors? Spinal Care Clinic is all about healthy living. Spinal Care Clinic sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients can believe their Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them cope with exisiting spine pain issues but also avent future episodes of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best prevented.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Non-smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, don’t they? A new study showed that men who took advantage of more of these healthy choices had lower possibility of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is another favorable healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors are shown to reduce the chance of having long term troubling low back pain in women and even potentially improve the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Participating in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program improves the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Wearing a lumbar support orthosis increases postural control when standing on unlevel ground.  This may be particularly helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unstable. (4) Spinal Care Clinic works with our Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues leads to more healthy behaviors. When patients are given the opportunity to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were lower than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access results in a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief shows that their familiarity with the doctor’s treatment, social network endorsements, geographical proximity, and credentials of the doctor prompted their choice.
