Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care and Exercise

March 12, 2019

Before undergoing back surgery, Fort Wayne back pain sufferers can benefit from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps documenting the usefulness of non-surgical care for back pain relief. InFort Wayne Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is the chiropractic care clinic for both!


Self-care is often proposed as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that does not work, including 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 recommended by medical physician groups like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc specializes in a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well help Fort Wayne back pain sufferers refrain from back surgery and manage their back pain more self-sufficiently.


Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves as much as possible. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc realizes this. Exercise is documented to be useful for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper form of exercise is vital, so we will talk about what’s suitable for you! Maybe Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned and managed their pain condition more independently and effectively. They performed better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising, did more to manage their own pain conditions without outside help. These, in turn, motivated them to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits resulted without back surgery.


Researchers set up a trial of exercise for back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They described the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They set up exercise programs for each patient to perform. They found that back pain patients who experienced this pre-surgery program of explanation 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’ mental state got better as they exercised. They had time to contemplate their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t describe symptom improvement reacted well to this program as they thought themselves more confident managing their pain themselves. (4) These are all beneficial outcomes Fort Wayne back pain patients discover in their chiropractic care at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. Control not cure is a reasonable goal when dealing with back pain.
