PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research states that those who undergo rehabilitation after back disc surgery have more favorable treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients do not undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being told to do so. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also called “failed back surgical syndrome”), Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without another surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds that 81% of these patients acquired greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be sufficient relief to get these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend did not do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are undergoing back pain post-back surgery, Spinal Care Clinic can help with gentle, research-documented, Burlington and Hamilton 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 comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise doesn’t lessen glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your odds of low back pain. (4) Ask Spinal Care Clinic about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
