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. (5) Well, Lakeshore Chiropractic
