The Value of Ottawa Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you envision that? Do you embody it? Do you know what behaviors are healthy? The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is all about healthy living. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Ottawa chiropractic patients can believe their Ottawa chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them deal with exisiting spine pain issues but also ward off 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. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those sound about right, do they not? A new study showed that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had lower possibility of long duration low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is an additional positive healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors are shown to reduce the chance of having long term troubling low back pain in women and even potentially better the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Participating in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Using a lumbar support belt increases postural control when standing on unlevel ground.  This may be notably welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unsteady. (4) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider works with our Ottawa back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues leads to 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 went to 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, geographical proximity, and doctor’s qualifications motivated their choice.
