Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, authors report on
treatment outcomes of patients with implanted spinal stimulators for
post-surgical continued back pain management. Patients with these
devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain after back surgery. After being treated with chiropractic spinal
manipulation or mobilization, the patients in
the study reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a
physician is “Do no harm”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule
in this study’s findings. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center offers Manahawkin
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!
Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly
Patients with chronic neck pain have a shorter stride and less
thoracic spinal rotation when walking. Walking like this will affect the
spine well into the future. (2) What to do? Manahawkin Chiropractic Center’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Seek Manahawkin
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!
National guidelines recommend that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise a week. How many of us
Manahawkin folks do? Just 52%! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It’s shown that
150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back
pain patients going. They also feel
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so effective. Our
Manahawkin chiropractic practice encourages a simple walk a day to all Manahawkin chiropractic
Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar
NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall
improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new
meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one
of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) NSAIDs are
reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference
is not clinically significant between NSAIDs and placebo.
It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center
