Mandeville Chiropractic’s Healthy News for March 2017

Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects

In a new report, authors report on treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal stimulators for pain management after back surgery. Patients with these devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain post surgically. After being treated with chiropractic spinal manipulation or mobilization, patients with these stimulators reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a physician is “Do no harm”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule in this study’s findings. Mandeville Chiropractic offers Mandeville chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!

Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly

Chronic neck pain patients seem to walk more stiffly. Why? Their stride is shorter and their mid-spine doesn’t rotate as much. Walking like this will affect the spine well into the future. (2) Mandeville Chiropractic’s best advice: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Get Mandeville chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk more easily.

Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!

National guidelines recommend that we all get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. Only 52% of us Mandeville non-back pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It’s shown that 150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back pain patients going. These post-surgical patients also feel less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so important. Our Mandeville chiropractic practice urges all of our Mandeville chiropractic patients to do something every day like take a little walk.

Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar

NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) Another study reports that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically important. It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Mandeville Chiropractic’s non-drug Mandeville chiropractic care is pain-relieving!

March may be the month of luck and green-leafed clovers, but luck is also being prepared for the opportunity/issue/problem before us. When it comes to back pain, neck pain, arm pain and leg pain, Mandeville Chiropractic is. Our Mandeville chiropractic care practice is pleased to share these new advances and findings with our Mandeville chiropractic friends and family!
