PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research states that those who go through rehab4 after back disc surgery have more favorable treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being told to do so. For those who experience continued pain after back surgery (also referred to as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Chicago chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without further surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeking care from a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds that 81% of these patients achieved greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be ample relief to allow these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehabilitation after back surgery and/or are feeling back pain post-back surgery, Chiropractic Care can help with gentle, research-documented, Chicago chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is beneficial for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are made up of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise does not deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your chances of low back pain. (4) Talk with Chiropractic Care about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Chicago chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!

Thank you for trusting your spinal health and healing to Chiropractic Care and mentioning Chiropractic Care to your Chicago friends and family.
