"Why do I need on-going chiropractor
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Buffalo, NY chiropractor,
just treat it and put a stop to the pain altogether so it doesn't come back?"
This is not a bizarre
question, and it's also quite
perceptive. The answer is fairly
understandable, too, though two-fold: we are born with spinal
issues or we develop them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with spinal weaknesses that will
be with us forever. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are unique to one's
own spine. There is no way to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is ours. So we must learn how to respect our spines so as to not trigger
pain. Your Buffalo, NY chiropractor at The Novelli Wellness Center can perform
the spinal manipulation designed to ease
your specific spinal condition. Then, you'll want to think
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You do not want to compromise your now-pain-relieved
spine further or again.
- nutritional needs - The Novelli Wellness Center will suggest
some nutrition ideas to strengthen
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening prerequisites - Our simple exercises don't take long but will
take you and your spine far in keeping it strong!
It is in these continued spine problems that
we - you and your Buffalo, NY chiropractor - must
collaborate for the greatest
outcome, even coming in for occasional spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us injure our backs. We do
things that harm the seemingly healthiest
of spines: falling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting excess weight. You get the idea - things
we do in our normal activities of daily living may injure
us, and we end up with back pain. So, when we damage the spine to the
level that we cause intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now have a spinal weakness which may become the weak link
in our spinal health.
We all must maintain a strong,
well-aligned spine and use the spine with the respect and knowledge of
avoiding those settings
that could cause it pain.
How? You and your Buffalo, NY chiropractor see
each other on occasion.
An occasional visit to The Novelli Wellness Center for spinal alignment
and review of healthy spine maintenance is helpful. Post-continued
spinal manipulation after the initial
pain-relieving care is even suggested as a way to chieve
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is much better than
having to go through repetitive treatment of Buffalo, NY
back pain. It averts pain and suffering in the
present and decreases the chance of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A new report described the
reality of low back pain being a major cause of disability around
the world. It is persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not common that it just goes away and never returns. Fortunately, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been documented as
effective in reducing the number of days of pain for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was reported to be
of high value saw such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment concerned
others. (2) The Novelli Wellness Center strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain diminishes.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is disruptive. Relief is possible with
The Novelli Wellness Center. Just understand that there is a logical necessity
and even benefit for occasional spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine conditions.
