The Value of Two Rivers Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you envision that? Do you embody it? Do you know what behaviors are healthy? Lakeshore Chiropractic is all about healthy living. Lakeshore Chiropractic sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Two Rivers chiropractic patients can believe their Two Rivers chiropractor to be an escort to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them deal with current spine pain issues but also avent future episodes of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best avoided.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Non-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 decreased possibility of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is an additional advantageous healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors are shown to decrease the chance of having long term upsetting low back pain in women and even potentially improve the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Taking part in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program improves the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Wearing a lumbar support orthosis increases postural control when standing on unstable ground.  This may be particularly helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unstable. (4) Lakeshore Chiropractic works with our Two Rivers back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues encourages more healthy behaviors. When patients are given the opportunity to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were less 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 shows that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network endorsements, how close they were to the doctor’s office, and credentials of the doctor influenced their choice.
