Burlington and Hamilton 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 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.


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.


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.


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!
