Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery Manahawkin Chiropractic Care and Exercise

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!


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.


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 exercise of choice. 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 performed 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.


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.
