Manahawkin Chiropractic Care of Continued Back Pain after Back Surgery

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 fulfills Manahawkin back pain patients’ desire for relief. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center offers 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 surely 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 chiropractic care 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.

Decision Making 

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.
