PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research reports that those who take advantage of rehabilitation after back disc surgery experience 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 choice or by not being directed to do it. For those who experience continued pain after back surgery (also known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Manahawkin chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without another surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeking care from a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds that 81% of these patients achieved more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be ample relief to return these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend did not do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are experiencing back pain post-back surgery, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center can help with gentle, research-documented, Manahawkin chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is good for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise doesn’t reduce glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus performing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your chances of low back pain. (4) Talk with Manahawkin Chiropractic Center about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Manahawkin chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
