PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research states that those who take advantage of rehab4 after back disc surgery find themselves with better treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They go back to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being directed to do so. For those who experience continued pain after back surgery (also referred to as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Brooks chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without further surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients gained greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be sufficient relief to get 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, Soft Health and Healing Clinic can help with gentle, research-documented, Brooks 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 made up of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise doesn’t lessen glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus performing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your chances of low back pain. (4) Talk with Soft Health and Healing Clinic about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Brooks chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
