Spinal Care Clinic Helps Relieve Post-Surgical Back Pain

Back surgery. It is an option some choose for back pain relief. At one year follow up, generally around 50% of surgical patients report continued relief. What then? More back surgery? More pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Spinal Care Clinic would add chiropractic care as a viable approach before back surgery, and Spinal Care Clinic  welcomes back pain patients to the Burlington and Hamilton back pain specialty practice even if they’ve already undergone back surgery and still have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical method to relieve Burlington and Hamilton spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that is founded on evidence-based research with documented clinical outcomes of relieving and controlling back pain. Cox Technic satisfies Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients seeking relief. Spinal Care Clinic presents it to their Burlington and Hamilton 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 deal with. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery isn’t 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 wants to try anything but those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Spinal Care Clinic stands ready with its Burlington and Hamilton 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 beneficial 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 proficient, and meet patient expectations and preferences. That is what chiropractic research continues to do: produce the research and publish the outcomes for the public to decide what is best for dealing with their back pain.

Decision Making 

How does one make that decision though? When a surgeon offers surgery or a pain medicine doctor offers medication or a physical therapist offers exercise or a chiropractor offers spinal manipulation in one form or another, how does the relief-seeking Burlington and Hamilton back pain patient decide? Have all of these providers provide 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. Spinal Care Clinic certainly does. Our Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers are grateful when they get relief after care.

So Spinal Care Clinic wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Burlington and Hamilton 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 demonstrated greater than 50% relief of pain at the conclusion 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 well to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Spinal Care Clinic finds that a combination approach for pain relief is usually best for our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients.

Every Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patient is suited with his or her very own, personalized treatment plan that involves the following: combination of approaches as appropriate, interaction with fellow healthcare colleagues as needed, presentation of the newest in clinical outcomes of care options existing, and standing by you, our Burlington and Hamilton post-surgical continued back pain patient, all the way.
