Tarrytown Back Pain Relief Includes Self-Management

“Just give me something to stop the pain.” or “Just do something so I stop hurting.” are just two comments Tarrytown Chiropractic and fellow back pain healthcare practitioners hear all the time. When in pain, we all just want it to stop in the easiest and fastest way possible. This is not always possible though. We all need to look at our pain and make friends with it to some extent. We can see it for what it is. Temporary. Unwelcome. Disruptive. But manageable many times when engaged. Tarrytown Chiropractic encourages our Tarrytown back pain patients and neck pain patients to take part in their back pain relief process. It can make a difference. It may perhaps even alter your life for the better. Many Tarrytown chiropractic patients have lived this.

SELF-MANAGEMENT BENEFITS

Amazingly up to 25% of back pain patients in a new study were not actively engaged in their spine care treatment plan. Research is filled with papers emphasizing the significance of patient-involvement in treatment of spine pain. What kept such patients participating? In researcher-ease, environmental context and resources, emotion, memory/attention/decision-making, and behavioural regulation did. Knowing that these things were the interfering culprits that reduced patients’ participation in their own care, researchers made a distinctive plan to deal with these issues and raise the patients’ understanding and participation via text reminders, exercises, lifestyle changes, webinars, videos, paper educational materials and more. (1) One study discovered that a variety of approaches to drop disability and work absenteeism was cost effective though no one certain intervention stood out over others. (2) Like these researchers, Tarrytown Chiropractic tries to do whatever it takes to help our Tarrytown back pain and neck pain patients!

SPINE EXERCISES AND EMS

This may be a unique helpful intervention for certain patients: whole-body electromyostimulation. It dropped nonspecific chronic low back pain just as well as back-strengthening exercise protocols. When fear of movement and functional limitations because of back pain are a part of the problem, whole body electrical stimulation improved patients’ strength and stabilization in good time, reducing pain intensity and enhancing trunk flexors. (3) Tarrytown Chiropractic shares such options to help our patients.

SELF-MANAGEMENT APP

Have you heard “There’s an app for that!”? Tarrytown Chiropractic is sure you have! Not alarming in today’s app-crazy world that there is an app in development to help you keep track of self-management tasks like exercise, sleep, etc. For the “selfBACK” app, researchers are now collecting data on the usefulness of various interventions at baseline, 6 weeks, 3, 6, and 9 months for nonspecific low back pain. From this data collection, researchers will fill the app with tips and exercises that have benefited others with similar issues. Each patient’s app will then be tailored for self-management of back pain and other musculoskeletal issues based on what others with similar conditions found helpful and relieving. (4) Tarrytown Chiropractic looks forward to saying “There is an app for that!" Tarrytown Chiropractic knows that some of our Tarrytown back pain patients will love this!
