PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research reports that those who go through rehabilitation after back disc surgery find themselves with more favorable treatment outcomes in the year after 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 known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Carrolltown chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without further surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients achieved greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be sufficient relief to allow these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are feeling back pain post-back surgery, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation can help with gentle, research-documented, Carrolltown chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is helpful for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise doesn’t lessen glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your odds of low back pain. (4) Ask Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
