Back Pain Sufferers Reduce Disability with Chiropractic Care  

Chiropractic care for back pain has been proven to provide pain relief while improving mobility and function. Now, a recent study provides evidence that chiropractic care can not only reduce back pain but also lessen disability in patients. The study focused on 750 United States military service members still on active duty. All were being treated for lower back pain. Traditional measures such as physical therapy as well as drugs were used.  Then, half of the group were treated by a chiropractor. The chiropractic methods used included spinal manipulation as well as special exercises. In just six weeks, the military service members who received the chiropractic treatments had less back pain and less disability. The research was led by Dr. Christine Goertz of the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. She told Reuters that the treatments may help muscles heal while improving mobility in the body. They may also help manage pain by changing how pain is perceived. Back pain in the lumbar spine (lower back) affects one in five adult Americans. With painkillers such as opioids leading to increasing addictions, safe, natural treatments like chiropractic care are increasingly sought after. If you're suffering from back pain, neck pain, headaches, or joint related pain, contact your local doctor of chiropractic today!

Regular Exercise Is Great for Mental Health – But Watch Out for Too Much  

According to a study of 1.2 million adults across the U.S., people who engage in regular exercise report an overall healthier mental state than non-active or sedentary people. However, more exercise is not necessarily better for mental health. According to this research, daily exercisers actually report less mental wellbeing. This means, just like anything else, moderation is key to reap the health benefits of physical activity. And, according to the study, all kinds of exercise counts, including housework, mowing the lawn, caring for children, fishing, gym sessions, running, walking, and more. Researchers have continually proven that exercise can have major positive health effects, including lowered risks for stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. However, the link between good mental health and exercise is less certain. While the researchers in this particular study were able to positively link exercise to healthy mindsets, they weren’t able to demonstrate cause and effect. The study asked adults across the U.S. to give a ballpark estimate of how often during the previous month they would say their mental health was "not good" due to emotional issues, including those related to stress and depression. In addition, these adults reported their exercise habits during the previous month, including how long each session lasted. One major takeaway from the study: People who exercised regularly reported experiencing less mental health issues. In total, the exercisers reported 43% fewer days with mental health issues than non-exercisers.
