With any ailment, especially low back pain, self-care is the most important part! Relying on you doctor to do all the work will put you in a very challenging spot.
As a provider, my job is to get you back on the right track, provide guidance over your home care, and help you develop good habits that prevent future injuries. My job is NOT to be your crutch every time you have a little ache. We empower, not enable!
Start with these easy tips and exercises in the 6th part of our low back pain series. Most can be done at home or at work, but it should be short and frequent. Reach out with questions and successes. Get after it and don’t give up. Low back pain does not have to be a forever thing. Break up with #lowbackpain

For too long, x-ray and MRI have been part of the standard work up for low back pain, even uncomplicated seemingly generic mechanical low back pain.
All healthcare providers who work with musculoskeletal complaints are guilty. Either it’s a provider using imaging to free up their schedule, bill more services, or unfortunately, scare a patient with a picture they don’t understand but telling them things that have little to no impact on their presenting complaint.
This has to stop. In most* cases, imaging is not needed or even recommended by all major healthcare organizations in the early stages of acute low back pain in the absence of 🚩.
Check out our #lowbackpain series part about imaging and red flags. In this article is reference to a great study that outlines the normalcy of ‘findings’ in people who have no history of back pain. Link to blog in Bio.

There are just as many myths about low back pain as there are causes (covered in our last post). Now, with instant access to an abundance of information, everyone has their own thoughts, tips, & theories. Well...here is ours!
We start with the classic #chiropractic dogmatic theory of #subluxation. While not actually what is going on, it was an easy way to explain that joint motion, improved range of motion, and decreased muscle tone could relieve pain and improve life activity. Medicine has moved past theories from the 1900’s and so must we!
Take that big first hit and then add in normal things like arthritis and short legs or suggesting a back brace and bed rest to help you relieve pain and improve your back and we have the makings of a serious stance on what is correct for addressing low back pain.
Enjoy part 4 of our low back pain series. It is sure to open your eyes if you have ever heard any of the explanations we mention in our myth category. #lowbackpain #lowbackpainrelief #arthritis #chiropractic #movementismedicine #saltlakecity
