BACK PAIN STATS

80% of us humans will have at least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. One in 3 of us has back pain right now. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa often tells patients that the current episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If for no other reason, it is asking for care. It won’t be disregarded. Your spine will be grateful for an effective treatment plan to get rid of the pain as well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.

CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS

That is where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Certainly our West Des Moines chiropractic patients realize that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand that they do not want to suffer with that pain again! While there is no assurance that back pain or neck pain will not come back, preventing pain and/or its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile goal as is a goal to be able to do everyday activities as pain free and worry free as possible. A recent study titled the Nordic Maintenance Care Program reported that such chiropractic maintenance care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced activities and boosted the number of pain free weeks between episodes. These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, doesn’t prevent new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to decrease life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have recurrent and persistent low back pain.
