Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, researchers share
treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal
stimulators for pain management after back surgery. Patients with these
devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain after back surgery. After being treated with chiropractic spinal
manipulation or mobilization, patients with these stimulators 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. Soft Health and Healing Clinic offers Brooks
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) What to do? Soft Health and Healing Clinic’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Seek Brooks
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk more easily.
minutes of Exercise a Week – For All of Us Especially After Back Surgery
National guidelines recommend that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. How many of us
Brooks folks do? Just 52%! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It is shown that
150 minutes keeps post-surgical back pain patients moving and away from
another surgery. They also experience
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so important. Soft Health and Healing Clinic promotes a walk a day to all Brooks chiropractic patients.
Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar
A meta-analysis, the
highest form of research reporting, shares that NSAIDSeven
though they are one of the most frequently prescribed
drugs for sciatic leg pain offer similar pain relief and overall improvement to
placebo with a higher risk of adverse side-effects. (4) NSAIDs are
reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference
is not clinically relevant between NSAIDs and placebo.
It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Soft Health and Healing Clinic
