PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research states that those who undergo rehabilitation after back disc surgery find themselves with better 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 so. For those who experience continued pain after back surgery (also referred to as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Mandeville chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without another surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds 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 adequate relief to return 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 undergoing back pain post-back surgery, Mandeville Chiropractic can help with gentle, research-documented, Mandeville 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 comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise doesn’t reduce glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your odds of low back pain. (4) Ask Mandeville Chiropractic about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Mandeville chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
