Carrolltown Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain After Back Surgery Surgery and Integrates Extension Exercise into the Treatment Plan

Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offers back pain relief to patients who have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. 

Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.

Many Carrolltown back pain patients choose back surgery expecting Carrolltown back pain relief. That expectation is not always met. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is told by Carrolltown back surgery patients and studies it in the spine literature.  49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) due to a disc herniation is common. (1) Post-surgical back pain patients may find that they have back pain after Carrolltown back surgery. What are some choices? Spinal manipulation and exercise is one relieving option. The American College of Physicians and American Pain Society recommend spinal manipulation for low back pain relief. (2) One patient experienced 89% improvement with 12 spinal manipulation sessions plus exercise. (3) A study of 69 post-surgical back pain patients cared for with Cox® Technic - like they are at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation – discovered that 81% of patients showed at least 50% reduction of pain at the end of 3 months of care. 78.6% of those patients had persistent pain relief at 24 months follow up. (4) Carrolltown chiropractic relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation of back pain relief. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation invites you or a suffering friend or family member to visit today.

Listen to this PODCAST on The Back Doctors’ Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson in which Dr. David Atiyeh shares the case of a patient who had experienced back surgery expecting pain relief and post-surgically discovered pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.

Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recommends extensor strengthening exercises when back pain patients are ready for them.

Extension Exercise

Carrolltown back pain sufferers often find relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing backward into extension. (Read the SPINE article May 2018 on our website about why!) Extension is not all bad. A healthy spine can extend. A healthy spine needs solid back muscles to support all its motions. Strengthening those extensor muscles to stop Carrolltown back pain is essential. Research shows that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in Carrolltown chiropractic patients with chronic low back pain. (5) Why? Back muscles degenerate in back pain sufferers like spinal discs degenerate. (6) Add extension exercises into your day when your Carrolltown chiropractor tells you it is time to do so. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation can help!
