Soft Health and Healing Clinic Helps Relieve Post-Surgical Back Pain

Back surgery. It’s an option some choose to get relief of their back pain. About 50% of them report relief at one year later. What then? More back surgery? More pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Soft Health and Healing Clinic would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile option before back surgery, and Soft Health and Healing Clinic  welcomes back pain patients to the Brooks back pain specialty practice even if they have already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical method to relieve Brooks spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that has much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. It satisfies Brooks back pain patients seeking relief. Soft Health and Healing Clinic presents it to their Brooks back pain patients if they find themselves with post-surgical continued pain or the condition diagnosis of “failed back surgery syndrome” (FBSS).

Post Surgical Continued Pain Diagnosis 

A FBSS diagnosis is certainly not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to consider let alone deal with. It happens though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these types of back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is referred for physical therapy, advised to try medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient welcomes options beyond those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Soft Health and Healing Clinic stands ready with its Brooks chiropractic care to help at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic is shown to be equally beneficial as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report further states that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be based on patient preference and values.” (1) That is what evidence-based medicine is all about: seek out the best evidence from the research, pursue care from the back pain specialist who is clinically adept, and meet patient expectations and preferences. That is what chiropractic research continues to do: produce the research and publish the outcomes for the public to base its decision on what is best for managing their back pain.

Decision Making 

How does one make that decision though? Surgeons, pain control specialists, physical therapists and chiropractors all offer their various approaches that seem reasonable for relief, the pain suffering patient may have trouble deciding. What will help? Have all of these providers provide patients with unbiased information about the potential benefits and risks of the options. (2) Everyone knows though that when the pain is intense, the first offer of relief is really appealing. Any human physician wants to help a person in pain get rid of that. Soft Health and Healing Clinic certainly does. Our Brooks back pain sufferers are thankful when they get relief after care.

So Soft Health and Healing Clinic shares these recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Brooks back pain patients: spinal manipulation relief for post-surgical continued pain patients and for post-implanted and currently wearing spinal stimulator patients. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients, 80% of patients demonstrated greater than 50% relief of pain at the end of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% reported 50% relief of pain at 24 months follow up. The percent of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers tell that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are observed in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient responds well to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Soft Health and Healing Clinic finds that a combination approach for pain relief is usually most productive for our Brooks chiropractic patients.

Every Brooks chiropractic patient is matched with his or her very own, personalized treatment plan that involves the following: recommendation of a variety of approaches as appropriate, interaction with fellow healthcare colleagues as needed, presentation of the newest in clinical outcomes of care options existing, and support for you, our Brooks post-surgical continued back pain patient, all the way.
