PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research documents that those who go through rehabilitation after back disc surgery find themselves with more favorable treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They go back 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 called “failed back surgical syndrome”), Two Rivers chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without another surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds that 81% of these patients acquired greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be ample relief to allow 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 experiencing back pain post-back surgery, Lakeshore Chiropractic can help with gentle, research-documented, Two Rivers chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is beneficial for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise does not lessen glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your chances of low back pain. (4) Ask Lakeshore Chiropractic about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Two Rivers chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
