The Value of Preston Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you envision that? Do you embody it? What are healthy living behaviors? Chiropractic Associates is all for healthy living. Chiropractic Associates sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Preston chiropractic patients can trust their Preston chiropractor to be an escort to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them cope with exisiting spine pain issues but also ward off future bouts of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best prevented.

HEALTHY BEHAVIORS

What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Non-smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, do they not? A new study described that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had decreased risk of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Eating fruit and vegetables is another positive healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors are shown to decrease the risk of developing long term upsetting low back pain in women and even potentially better the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Taking part in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Using a lumbar support belt increases postural control when standing on unstable ground.  This may be especially helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unstable. (4) Chiropractic Associates works with our Preston back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.

CARE CHOICE

Choice of care for health care issues encourages more healthy behaviors. When patients are able to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were lower than if they sought care from their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access results in a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief found that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network endorsements, geographical proximity, and credentials of the doctor prompted their choice.
