Guidelines. There are guidelines for everything!
This post talks about some of the more recent
guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other
healthcare providers to enhance the healing of Oxford back
pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a core part of back
pain prevention as well as management that all providers encourage
and all providers are concerned aren’t
always carried out. Chiropractors like your own
at Satterwhite Chiropractic are health promoters and work to do that in the nicest,
most supportive way! Let’s work
together to get you better.
GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Quality in healthcare delivery is discussed a lot. Providers and
patients want the highest quality care possible in
delivering care and getting care. Interprofessional
collaboration rises to the top when researchers
evaluate 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 as well as evidence-based that take
into account patient worries and higher
clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity certainly is a component
of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Oxford pain relief.
BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN
In a recent survey, chiropractors reported
that the biggest concern they had in managing back
pain patients was patient follow through (coming to appointments, doing exercises, following at-home
instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors stated
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 issue, inquiring
how the exercises are going, and counseling patients in the
proper technique to do exercises as well as benefit that comes from exercising. (4) One way that patients seem
to respond more positively and be more willing to do
physical activity is the use of a mobile app. Such
apps help handle 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
produces the rightfully desired outcome.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
Core stabilization exercises are commonly
recommended to back pain patients. A new study that added
in diaphragmatic breathing exercises found many advantages
for chronic low back pain patients: improved muscle activity, chest
expansion, quality of sleep, improved disability and physical activity
and pain scores, decreased fear avoidance, and higher
physical activity, among others. (6) As a partner on
your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic feels a responsibility
to promote physical activity so that you can manage your own
health a bit more. Our younger Oxford back
pain and neck pain sufferers get positive results. Our older adults who have aches and pains and/or back pain and/or neck pain get
positive results, too!
