PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research documents that those who undergo rehab4 after back disc surgery find themselves with more favorable treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being told to do it. For those who face continued pain after back surgery (also referred to as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Oxford chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without another surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients visiting a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds that 81% of these patients acquired more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be adequate relief to return these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend did not do any rehabilitation after back surgery and/or are experiencing back pain post-back surgery, Satterwhite Chiropractic can help with gentle, research-documented, Oxford chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is beneficial for the nutrition of your spinal discs! The discs are made up of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise does not 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 Satterwhite Chiropractic about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Oxford chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
