Before undergoing back surgery, Burlington and Hamilton back pain
sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps sharing the value
of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. Spinal Care Clinic is
the chiropractic care office in Burlington and Hamilton for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently proposed
as first-line 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 organizations like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Spinal Care Clinic delivers
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well help
Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers evade back
surgery and manage their back pain more independently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves
as much as possible. Spinal Care Clinic knows this. Exercise is documented
to be positive for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper type
of exercise is vital, so we will discuss what’s right 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 efficiently. They performed better at work, took
pleasure in hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising,
did more to make do with their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, motivated them to discover
a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits arose
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers established a trial of exercise for
back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They described
the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They set
up exercise programs for each patient to do. They
found that back pain patients who underwent
this pre-surgery program of explanation and exercise gained
benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers felt better
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ disposition improved 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 felt more confident managing their pain themselves. (4)
These are all beneficial outcomes Burlington and Hamilton back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Spinal Care Clinic.
Control not cure is a realistic goal when dealing
with back pain.
