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 Burlington and Hamilton back
pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a primary part of back
pain prevention as well as management that all providers encourage
and all providers worry aren’t
always done. Chiropractors like your own
at Spinal Care Clinic are health promoters and work to do that in the kindest,
most caring way! Let us work
together to get you better.
GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Quality in healthcare delivery is discussed a lot. Providers and
patients want the best quality care possible in
delivering care and getting care. Interprofessional
collaboration rises to the top when researchers
assess systems for the care of back pain like appropriate
use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also put
together 70 quality markers for chiropractic
delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take
into consideration patient concerns and enhanced
clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity surely is a part
of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Burlington and Hamilton pain relief.
BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN
In a recent survey, chiropractors conveyed
that the biggest concern they held in treating back
pain patients was patient follow through (making appointments, doing exercises, following at-home
instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors noted
that they were optimistic about healthier patient
lifestyles. These chiropractors also reported that they were actively
involved 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 follow through more positively and be more willing to do
physical activity is using a mobile application. Apps
that are build built around reported pain, pain intensity, and app features
like audio explanation and animation of each exercise are well received. (5) Doing the right exercises in the right way typically
brings about the rightfully desired outcome.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
Core stabilization exercises are usually
recommended to back pain patients. One new study that added
in diaphragmatic breathing exercises noted many advantages
for chronic low back pain patients: enhanced muscle activity, chest
expansion, quality of sleep, enhanced disability and physical activity
and pain scores, less fear avoidance, and higher
physical activity, and more. (6) As a partner on
your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Spinal Care Clinic feels a responsibility
to encourage physical activity so that you can manage your own
health a bit more. Our younger Burlington and Hamilton back
pain and neck pain sufferers get positive results. Our older adults who deal
with aches and pains and/or back pain and/or neck pain get
positive results, too!
