PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research documents that those who go through rehabilitation after back disc surgery find themselves with more favorable treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients do not undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being directed to do it. For those who face continued pain after back surgery (also called “failed back surgical syndrome”), Preston chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without further surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeking care from a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients gained more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be sufficient relief to get these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are experiencing back pain post-back surgery, Chiropractic Associates can help with gentle, research-documented, Preston chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is good for the nutrition of your spinal discs! The discs are made up of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise does not lessen glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus performing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your chances of low back pain. (4) Ask Chiropractic Associates about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Preston chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
