PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research states that those who take advantage of rehab4 after back disc surgery find themselves with better treatment outcomes in the year after the back surgery. They go back to work. (1) Some back surgery patients do not undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being directed to do it. For those who experience continued pain after back surgery (also known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Manchester chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease 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 acquired more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be adequate relief to allow 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 undergoing back pain post-back surgery, Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries can help with gentle, research-documented, Manchester chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is helpful for the nutrition of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are made 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 lowers your chances of low back pain. (4) Talk with Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Manchester chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
