Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery Oxford Chiropractic Care and Exercise

Before undergoing back surgery, Oxford back pain sufferers can benefit from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps documenting the usefulness of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. InOxford Satterwhite Chiropractic is the chiropractic care clinic for both!


Self-care is frequently proposed as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that does not produce the desired results, adding 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 suggested by medical physician groups like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic uses a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment known as Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well help Oxford back pain sufferers evade back surgery and control their back pain more independently.


Back pain sufferers want to help themselves as much as possible. Satterwhite Chiropractic knows this. Exercise is documented to be advantageous for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right form of exercise is key, so we’ll talk about what is proper for you! Maybe Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned and coped with their pain condition more independently and efficiently. They did better at work, took pleasure in hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising, did more to make do with their own pain conditions without outside help. These, in turn, motivated them to enjoy a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits came without back surgery.


Researchers set up a trial of exercise for back pain patients headed to back surgery. They explained the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They set up exercise programs for each patient to perform. They found that back pain patients who experienced this pre-surgery program of description and exercise gained benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain sufferers’ disposition improved as they exercised. They had time to mull over their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t describe symptom improvement reacted well to this program as they thought themselves more confident in being able to do some self-management of their pain. (4) These are all positive outcomes Oxford back pain patients discover in their chiropractic care at Satterwhite Chiropractic. Control not cure is a realistic goal when coping with back pain.
