Paramus Back Pain Relief Includes Self-Management

“Just give me something to stop the pain.” or “Just do something so I stop hurting.” are just two comments Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center and fellow back pain healthcare practitioners hear all the time. When in pain, we all just want it to stop in the easiest and quickest way possible. This is not always possible though. We all need to look at our pain and make friends with it to some extent. We can see it for what it is. Temporary. Unwelcome. Disruptive. But manageable many times when engaged. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center urges our Paramus back pain patients and neck pain patients to take part in their back pain relief process. It makes a difference. It may perhaps even alter your life for the better. Many Paramus chiropractic patients have experienced this.

SELF-MANAGEMENT BENEFITS

Remarkably up to 25% of back pain patients in a new study weren’t actively involved in their spine care treatment plan. Research is filled with papers highlighting the significance of patient-engagement with treatment of spine pain. What kept such patients participating? In researcher-ease, environmental context and resources, emotion, memory/attention/decision-making, and behavioural regulation did. Knowing that these things were the interfering culprits that reduced patients’ participation in their own care, researchers made a special plan to address these issues and improve the patients’ understanding and participation via text reminders, exercises, lifestyle changes, webinars, videos, paper educational materials and more. (1) One study discovered that a variety of approaches to lessen disability and work absenteeism was cost effective though no one certain intervention stood out over others. (2) Like these researchers, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center tries to do anything possible to help our Paramus back pain and neck pain patients!

SPINE EXERCISES AND EMS

This may be a unique helpful intervention for certain patients: whole-body electromyostimulation. It decreased nonspecific chronic low back pain equally as well as back-strengthening exercise protocols. When fear of movement and functional limitations because of back pain are a part of the problem, whole body electrical stimulation improved patients’ strength and stabilization in a timely fashion, decreasing pain intensity and enhancing trunk flexors. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center shares such options to help our patients.

SELF-MANAGEMENT APP

Have you heard “There’s an app for that!”? Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is sure you have! Not alarming in today’s app-crazy world that there is an app in development to help you keep track of self-management tasks like exercise, sleep, etc. For the “selfBACK” app, researchers are currently gathering data on the effectiveness of various interventions at baseline, 6 weeks, 3, 6, and 9 months for nonspecific low back pain. From this research data, researchers plan to fill the app with tips and exercises that have benefited others experiencing similar issues. Each patient’s app will then be tailored for self-management of back pain and other musculoskeletal issues based upon others with similar conditions found helpful and relieving. (4) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center looks forward to saying “There's an app for that!" Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows that some of our Paramus back pain patients will love this!
