Before undergoing back surgery, Manahawkin back pain
sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research continues
to share the benefit
of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. InManahawkin Manahawkin Chiropractic Center
is the chiropractic care clinic for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently proposed
as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t work, adding non-drug
therapy for acute low back pain – spinal manipulation – and for chronic or subacute
back pain – spinal manipulation, intensive interdisciplinary rehab, exercise,
acupuncture, massage, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy - is promoted
by medical physician groups like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center specializes in
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well help
Manahawkin back pain sufferers evade back
surgery and control their back pain more self-sufficiently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves
as much as possible. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows this. Exercise is documented
to be useful for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right type
of exercise is important, so we will discuss what is right for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based
exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned
and managed their pain condition more autonomously
and effectively. They did better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising,
did more to manage their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, helped them discover
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits arose
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers set up a trial of exercise for
back pain patients headed to back surgery. They explained
the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They established exercise programs for each patient to do. They
found that back pain patients who experienced
this pre-surgery program of explanation and exercise benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ frame of mind improved as they exercised. They had time to mull
over their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t
report symptom improvement reacted well to this
program as they thought themselves more confident managing their pain themselves. (4)
These are all beneficial outcomes Manahawkin back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center.
Control not cure is a realistic objective when coping
with back pain.
