Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

Quality of life. That is the important factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is privileged to work with Paramus chiropractic patients to increase their odds of aging well and enjoying the best quality of life possible. Paramus back pain patients value knowing what factors might adversely affect their quality of life and their options to diminish the influence of those factors.

FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE

Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis, disc degeneration and related back pain lower quality of life. These conditions often happen in mid-life and older life, making life not very enjoyable. Researchers found factors that seem to decrease the odds of suffering with these problems. What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Good spinal alignment. Greater back muscle strength. No issue with locomotion syndrome – trouble with moving from one position to another, one place to another. Good body balance. With such good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can expect a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are known to be important issues in motor control functions like balance, attempts to strengthen these explicitly are critical to attempt to reverse such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is manytimes a part of the chiropractic treatment plan for Paramus back pain patients. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows that back pain sufferers have many healthcare forms of care from which to choose and shares what the researchers say about the options.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

To benefit most out of an option, the circumstances must be optimal.  Back surgery may not always be the best option for every Paramus back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery doesn’t always produce fully the desired outcome, especially for patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability that accompany it lingered for 29% to 42% of patients who reportedly experienced little to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain propose non-surgical options like spinal manipulation first. Chiropractic care incorporates spinal manipulation. Chiropractic care at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is all about Cox® Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to achieve the sought after pain reduction outcome.

Paramus CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES

Chiropractic researchers are currently looking into the specific effects of chiropractic care’s spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance improvement in patients with low back pain, particularly active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were associated with back pain. (4) Low back pain is a common cause of disability in the military. Seeing as how military personnel are people like us all, this study’s results will be interesting! Another study that added chiropractic - spinal manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic approaches such as rehabilitative exercise, cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – improved short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty military. (5) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center gathers these helpful studies to share with our Paramus back pain patients.
