Oxford Chiropractic Relief for Back Pain After Surgery

Back surgery. It’s an option some choose to get relief of their back pain. About 50% of them report relief at one year later. What then? Another back surgery? More pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Satterwhite Chiropractic would add chiropractic care as a viable option before back surgery, and Satterwhite Chiropractic  welcomes back pain patients to the Oxford back pain specialty practice even if they’ve already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical approach to alleviate Oxford spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that offers much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. Cox Technic fulfills Oxford back pain patients’ desire for relief. Satterwhite Chiropractic presents it to their Oxford 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 surely not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to ponder let alone deal with. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery is not the desired answer for these types of back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is transferred to physical therapy, prescribed medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient welcomes options beyond those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Satterwhite Chiropractic stands ready with its Oxford chiropractic care to help at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic is shown to be equally effective as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report further states that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be based on patient preference and values.” (1) That’s 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 Oxford 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. Being human, the healthcare provider seeing a patient in pain wants to help that back pain patient get rid of the pain fast, too. Satterwhite Chiropractic certainly does. Our Oxford back pain sufferers are thankful when they get relief after care.

So Satterwhite Chiropractic wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Oxford 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 showed greater than 50% relief of pain at the end 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 amount 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 noted in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient reacts positively to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, reporting pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Satterwhite Chiropractic notices that a combination approach for pain relief is usually most productive for our Oxford chiropractic patients.

Every Oxford chiropractic patient is suited with his or her very own, personalized treatment plan that involves the following: recommendation of a variety of approaches as appropriate, cooperation with fellow healthcare colleagues as needed, presentation of the newest in clinical outcomes of care options available, and support for you, our Oxford post-surgical continued back pain patient, all the way.
