CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently proposed
as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t work, adding non-drug
therapy for acute low back pain – spinal manipulation – and for chronic or subacute
back pain – spinal manipulation, intensive interdisciplinary rehab, exercise,
acupuncture, massage, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy - is suggested
by medical physician groups like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic delivers

EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves
as much as possible. Soft Health and Healing Clinic realizes this. Exercise is documented
to be positive for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right type
of exercise is vital, so we will talk
about what is right for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based
exercise program revealed that the pain patients better functioned
and managed their pain condition more autonomously
and effectively. They performed better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising,
did more to make do with their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, helped them discover
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits came
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers set up a trial of exercise for
back pain patients headed to back surgery. They described
the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They set
up exercise programs for each patient to do. They
found that back pain patients who underwent
this pre-surgery program of description and exercise gained
benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ frame of mind improved as they exercised. They had time to contemplate their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not
describe symptom improvement reacted well to this
program as they felt more confident managing their pain themselves. (4)
These are all beneficial outcomes Brooks back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Soft Health and Healing Clinic.
