The Value of Plymouth Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you define that? Do you live it? What are healthy living behaviors? Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is all for healthy living. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Plymouth chiropractic patients can believe their Plymouth chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them cope with current spine pain issues but also avent future bouts 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. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, don’t they? A new study showed that men who took advantage of more of these healthy choices had lower possibility of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Eating fruit and vegetables is another favorable healthy behavior. This plus the other behaviors are shown to decrease the risk of having long term disturbing low back pain in women and even potentially better 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 unlevel ground.  This may be especially helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unsteady. (4) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology works with our Plymouth back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues generates more healthy behaviors. When patients are able to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were lower than if they sought care from their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access makes 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 doctor’s qualifications prompted their choice.
