Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care of Continued Back Pain after Back Surgery

Back surgery. It’s an option some choose for back pain relief. About 50% of them report relief at one year later. What’s next? Another back surgery? Additional pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center would add chiropractic care as a viable option before back surgery, and Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center  welcomes back pain patients to the Fort Wayne back pain specialty practice even if they’ve already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical approach to relieve Fort Wayne spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that has much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical outcomes of relieving and controlling back pain. It fulfills Fort Wayne back pain patients’ desire for relief. Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center presents it to their Fort Wayne 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 experience. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery is not the desired answer for these particular 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. Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center stands ready with its Fort Wayne chiropractic care to aid at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic shows itself to be equally effective as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report goes on to say 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, seek care from the back pain specialist who is clinically adept, and meet patient expectations and preferences. That’s 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 dealing with their back pain.

Decision Making 

How to decide 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 might help? Have all of these providers share with patients with impartial 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 looks really good. Any human physician wants to help a person in pain get rid of that. Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center certainly does. Our Fort Wayne back pain sufferers are appreciative when they get relief after care.

So Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Fort Wayne 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 showed more than 50% relief of pain at the end of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% continued with their 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 reacts positively to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering pain dropping from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center observes that a combination approach for pain relief is usually most productive for our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients.
