PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research reports that those who undergo rehabilitation 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 don’t undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being told to do it. For those who experience continued pain after back surgery (also referred to as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Fort Wayne chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without further surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeking care from a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients achieved greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be sufficient relief to allow these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend did not do any rehabilitation after back surgery and/or are feeling back pain post-back surgery, Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center can help with gentle, research-documented, Fort Wayne 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 made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise does not deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your chances of low back pain. (4) Talk with Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
