The Value of Mandeville Healthy Living

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

HEALTHY BEHAVIORS

What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those sound about right, don’t they? A recent study showed that men who took advantage of more of these healthy choices had lower risk of long duration low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is an additional positive healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors appeared to lessen the risk of developing long term upsetting low back pain in women and even potentially improve the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Participating in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Utilizing a lumbar support orthosis 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 unsteady. (4) Mandeville Chiropractic works with our Mandeville back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.

CARE CHOICE

Choice of care for health care issues generates 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 reports that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, geographical proximity, and doctor’s qualifications influenced their choice.
