Back surgery. It’s an option some choose for back pain relief. At one year follow up, generally around 50% of surgical
patients report continued relief. What’s next? More back surgery? Additional
pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic?
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile approach
before back surgery, and Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries welcomes back pain patients to the
Manchester 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
Manchester spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment
protocol that offers
much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical
outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. Cox
Technic satisfies Manchester back pain patients seeking relief.
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries presents it to their Manchester 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 ponder let alone experience. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these particular back pain sufferers.
Often such a patient is referred for physical therapy, advised to try
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. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries stands ready with its Manchester
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 proficient,
and meet patient expectations and preferences. That’s 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 dealing
with their back pain.
How does one make that decision though? When a surgeon offers surgery or a pain medicine doctor
offers medication or a physical therapist offers exercise or a chiropractor
offers spinal manipulation in one form or another, how does the relief-seeking Manchester
back pain patient decide? 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. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries certainly does.
Our Manchester back pain sufferers are appreciative
when they get relief after care.

So Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome
articles with Manchester 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 greater
than 50% relief of pain at the end of care (3 months) in a mean of
49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% reported 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 observed in their findings. (4) Finally,
a post-surgical patient reacts 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) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries notices that a
combination approach for pain relief is usually most productive for our Manchester chiropractic patients.
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries creates a chiropractic
treatment plan custom-made for each Manchester chiropractic
