Richmond Back Pain Care and Exercise Guidelines

Guidelines. There are guidelines everywhere! This post talks about some of the newer guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other healthcare providers to boost the healing of Richmond 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 are worried aren’t always done. Chiropractors like your own at Johnson Chiropractic are health promoters and work to do that in the nicest, most helpful way! We can 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 is on the top of the list when researchers analyze systems for the care of back pain like suitable use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also assembled 70 quality markers for chiropractic delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take into account patient concerns and higher clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity surely is a component of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Richmond pain relief.

BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

In a recent survey, chiropractors said that the biggest concern they had in treating back pain patients was patient follow through (coming to appointments, doing exercises, following at-home instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors reported that they were optimistic about healthier patient lifestyles. These chiropractors also reported that they were actively involved in promoting physical activity, recommending exercises to patients for their particular condition, asking how the exercises are going, and advising patients in the proper way 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 using a mobile app. Such apps help oversee 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 is the most effective.

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 benefits 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 part of your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic feels a duty to promote physical activity so that you can take care of you. Our younger back pain and neck pain sufferers benefit. Our older adults with aches and pains and/or Richmond back pain and/or neck pain benefit, too!
