Back surgery. It
is an option some choose for back pain relief. At one year follow up, generally around 50% of surgical
patients report continued relief. What then? Another back surgery? More
pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic?
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center would add chiropractic care as a viable option
before back surgery, and Manahawkin Chiropractic Center welcomes back pain patients to the
Manahawkin back pain specialty practice even if they have
already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic
is a non-surgical method to alleviate
Manahawkin spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment
protocol that is based on evidence-based research with documented clinical
outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. Cox
Technic satisfies Manahawkin back pain patients seeking relief.
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center presents it to their Manahawkin 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 certainly not one a
post-surgical back pain patient wants to consider let alone deal
with. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these types of back pain sufferers.
Often such a patient is referred for physical therapy, recommended
medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a
patient wants to try anything but those medical
approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else
before back surgery. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center stands ready with its Manahawkin
to aid at any stage of the process of back
pain and its relief.
Chiropractic Care for FBSS
Low back pain care with chiropractic shows itself
to be equally beneficial 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 is what
evidence-based medicine is all about: seek out the best evidence from the research,
pursue care from the back pain specialist who is clinically adept,
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 base its decision on what is best for managing their back pain.
How to decide though? Surgeons,
pain control specialists, physical therapists and chiropractors all offer their
various approaches that seem plausible for relief,
the pain suffering patient may have trouble deciding. What might
help? 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 is really appealing.
Any human physician wants to help a person in pain get rid of that. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center certainly does.
Our Manahawkin back pain sufferers are grateful
when they get relief after care.

So Manahawkin Chiropractic Center shares these recent chiropractic-outcome
articles with Manahawkin 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 demonstrated more
than 50% relief of pain at the conclusion 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 state that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation
or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are seen in their findings. (4) Finally,
a post-surgical patient responds well 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center finds that a
combination approach for pain relief is often best for our Manahawkin chiropractic patients.
