PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research documents that those who take advantage of rehab4 after back disc surgery experience more favorable treatment outcomes in the year after the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients do not undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being directed to do it. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also called “failed back surgical syndrome”), St. Francisville chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without further surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeking care from a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds that 81% of these patients acquired more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be enough relief to return these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehabilitation after back surgery and/or are undergoing back pain post-back surgery, Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville can help with gentle, research-documented, St. Francisville chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is helpful for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are made up of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise doesn’t reduce glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus performing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your odds of low back pain. (4) Ask Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your St. Francisville chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
