No Adverse Effects Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators Treated with Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation
In a new report, researchers report on
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 post
surgically. After being treated with chiropractic spinal
manipulation or mobilization, the patients in
the study reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a
physician is “Do no harm”. This study shows how spinal manipulation and
mobilization do just that. Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center offers Fort Wayne
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!
Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly
Patients with chronic neck pain have a shorter stride and less
thoracic spinal rotation when walking. This will likely have long term effects on the
spine. (2) What to do? Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Get Fort Wayne
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 suggest that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. Only 52% of us Fort Wayne non-back
pain folks do this! 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 have
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so effective. Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center promotes a walk a day to all Fort Wayne chiropractic patients.
Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar
NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall
improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new
meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one
of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) NSAIDs are
reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference
is not clinically significant between NSAIDs and placebo.
It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center
