Health and Wellness Center
When it comes to receiving treatment for any number of conditions, many people hope for a simple recovery. This is one of the motivating factors for avoiding medical care and relying on over-the-counter medication that only numbs the pain. While this can be effective, it will not treat the source of the pain. In fact, avoiding professional treatment will result in a constant battle with the pain that is never-ending.
What people may not realize is that any lifestyle choice, environmental factors and genetics can all contribute to one’s condition. As a health and wellness center, we can equip patients with the knowledge and tools to continue a healthy lifestyle after the initial treatment. Our practice has a Wellness Academy Program to help the patient develop better habits and achieve long-term relief.
Preventing Back Pain
No matter the type of life someone lives, there is always the potential for a chiropractic injury or back pain. Certain jobs increase the risk of an accident greatly, such as football. The American Chiropractic Association, ACA, states that all 32 U.S. professional football teams use chiropractors to keep players healthy. Even desk jobs in an office can cause people to develop a poor posture that can promote back problems.
While much of chiropractic treatment can begin as reactionary to a condition or pain, our health and wellness center can help to prevent the issue from recurring in the future. The main method for doing this is through helping the patient develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Causes and risk factors of back pain can include:
- Diet and nutrition
- Being overweight
- Improper exercising or lifting
- Certain types of arthritis
- Lack of physical activity
- Accidents or injuries
The lifestyle choices of an individual can greatly influence an individual’s health. While professional football players will be in good shape, they need to maintain that state of health. While it is not always possible to prevent accidents, it is possible to prevent back pain as a result of negative lifestyle choices. With the health and wellness center, we want to help patients achieve a higher and stable level of health.
Incorporating Techniques into One’s Lifestyle
Since back pain is more common in adults starting around 30 or 40 years of age, it is important to begin developing healthy habits as early as possible. Everyone lives with bad or unhealthy habits in a society that continues to push for less activity and more comfort. Thus, people may need professional help and guidance in developing healthy lifestyle changes.
At Kay Chiropractic Center, we do not just treat the patient, assign some medication and send them on their way. We will take the time to assess the situation and determine the most effective method of treatment. Excess weight is one of the more common causes of back pain and can be difficult to treat without professional assistance. With our nutritional counseling and weight loss program, we can help patients begin a weight loss-focused treatment.
We will begin by educating the patient on specific exercises and changes that can help promote healing. Following that, we will help the patient learn to maintain these changes and continue down the path toward a healthy life. Sometimes, the simple change of buying specific shoes can help to relieve back pain. However, it is important to note that treatment can be vastly different for each patient.
Following the initial treatment of a patient, we will schedule follow-up appointments with our Wellness Academy Program to track progress and provide support. The number of appointments will vary per the needs and treatment plan of the patient. While we want to help the patient in any way possible, we also want the patient to maintain this treatment.
We can provide the treatment techniques and overall plan, but the patient needs to follow said plan to see results. By seeking this type of treatment at our practice, we can continue to monitor one’s recovery and improvement toward a healthier lifestyle. People who seek over-the-counter-medications or various other store-bought treatments may find that they do not provide long-lasting results.
