Mandeville Chiropractic Helps Relieve Post-Surgical Back Pain

Back surgery. It is an option some choose to get relief of their back pain. About 50% of them report relief at one year later. What’s next? Another back surgery? More pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Mandeville Chiropractic would add chiropractic care as a viable approach before back surgery, and Mandeville Chiropractic  welcomes back pain patients to the Mandeville back pain specialty practice even if they have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical approach to relieve Mandeville spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that is based on evidence-based research with documented clinical outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. It satisfies Mandeville back pain patients seeking relief. Mandeville Chiropractic offers it to their Mandeville back pain patients if they find themselves with post-surgical continued pain or the condition diagnosis of “failed back surgery syndrome” (FBSS).

Post Surgical Continued Pain Diagnosis 

A FBSS diagnosis is surely not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to ponder let alone deal with. It happens though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these particular back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is referred for physical therapy, prescribed medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient wants to try anything but those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Mandeville Chiropractic stands ready with its Mandeville chiropractic care to assist at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic shows itself to be equally effective as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report further states that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be based on patient preference and values.” (1) That is what evidence-based medicine is all about: seek out the best evidence from the research, seek care from the back pain specialist who is clinically proficient, and meet patient expectations and preferences. That’s what chiropractic research continues to do: produce the research and publish the outcomes for the public to base its decision on what is best for managing their back pain.

Decision Making 

How to decide though? When a surgeon offers surgery or a pain medicine doctor offers medication or a physical therapist offers exercise or a chiropractor offers spinal manipulation in one form or another, how does the relief-seeking Mandeville back pain patient decide? Have all of these providers share with patients with impartial information about the potential benefits and risks of the options. (2) Everyone knows though that when the pain is intense, the first offer of relief is really appealing. Being human, the healthcare provider seeing a patient in pain wants to help that back pain patient get rid of the pain fast, too. Mandeville Chiropractic certainly does. Our Mandeville back pain sufferers are appreciative when they get relief after care.

So Mandeville Chiropractic shares these recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Mandeville back pain patients: spinal manipulation relief for post-surgical continued pain patients and for post-implanted and currently wearing spinal stimulator patients. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients, 80% of patients showed greater than 50% relief of pain at the conclusion of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% reported 50% relief of pain at 24 months follow up. The amount of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers state that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are noted in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient reacts positively to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, reporting pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Mandeville Chiropractic observes that a combination approach for pain relief is usually best for our Mandeville chiropractic patients.

Mandeville Chiropractic creates a chiropractic treatment plan designed for each Mandeville chiropractic patient that involves the following: combination of approaches as appropriate, interaction with fellow healthcare colleagues as needed, presentation of the newest in clinical outcomes of care options available, and support for you, our Mandeville post-surgical continued back pain patient, all the way.
