Lakeshore 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 share treatment outcomes of patients with implanted spinal stimulators for post-surgical continued back pain management. Patients with these devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain post surgically. After being treated with chiropractic spinal manipulation or mobilization, the patients in the study 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. Lakeshore Chiropractic offers Two Rivers 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 does not rotate as much. Walking like this will affect the spine well into the future. (2) Lakeshore Chiropractic’s best advice: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Get Two Rivers 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 Two Rivers non-back pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It’s shown that 150 minutes keeps post-surgical back pain patients moving and away from another surgery. They also have less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so important. Lakeshore Chiropractic promotes a walk a day to all Two Rivers chiropractic patients.

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 shares that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically relevant. It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo.
