Healthy News from Manahawkin Chiropractic Center for March 2017

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 patients.

Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar

A meta-analysis, the highest form of research reporting, shares that NSAIDSdespite their being. one of the most frequently prescribed drugs for sciatic leg pain offer similar pain relief and overall improvement to placebo with a higher risk of adverse side-effects. (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’s non-drug Manahawkin chiropractic care is pain-relieving! Contact Manahawkin Chiropractic Center today for an appointment.
