What a great combination! 8-12 Weeks of Arm Pain BEFORE Neck Surgery…Just the Right Amount of Time for Chiropractic Care! Neck surgery is a serious undertaking. Just ask any post-neck surgery patient. How long do neurosurgeons who do neck surgeries for cervical disc herniations with arm pain wait before doing neck surgery? 8 to 12 weeks. (3) That’s just enough time for your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc to help! In a study of 39 patients with cervical disc herniation and arm pain, treatment with chiropractic, non-surgical Cox Technic as used in this chiropractic clinic produced pain reduction in a mean of 13.2 treatments for a drop of 41.2 points on the visual analog scale. (4) That’s relief without surgery! Natural Curcumin Reduces Pain and Inflammation Curcumin from turmeric (a spice known for its anti-inflammatory properties) shows “superior results over corticosteroids” in helping inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis. (5) Further, curcumin is shown to promote peripheral nerve regeneration and recovery. (6) And the bonus is that curcumin is a natural approach to pain and inflammation reduction! Then combining curcumin with the Fort Wayne chiropractic Cox Technic’s stretching may well produce even more satisfactory results since stretching of the connective tissues is shown help reduce inflammatory mechanisms within the tissue in the early stages of inflammation.
