Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, researchers report on
treatment outcomes of patients with implanted spinal stimulators for
post-surgical continued back pain management. Patients with these
devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain after back surgery. After being treated with chiropractic spinal
manipulation or mobilization, the patients in
the study reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a
physician is “Do no harm”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule
in this study’s findings. Chiropractic Care offers Chicago
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!
Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly
Patients with chronic neck pain have a shorter stride and less
thoracic spinal rotation when walking. This will likely have long term effects on the
spine. (2) Chiropractic Care’s
best advice: Don’t let neck pain become chronic. Get Chicago
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
minutes of Exercise a Week – For All of Us Especially After Back Surgery
National guidelines recommend that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise a week. Only 52% of us Chicago non-back
pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It is shown that
150 minutes keeps post-surgical back pain patients moving and away from
another surgery. They also have
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so important. Chiropractic Care encourages a simple walk a day to all Chicago chiropractic
Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective
A meta-analysis, the
highest form of research reporting, shares that NSAIDSeven
though they are one of the most frequently prescribed
drugs for sciatic leg pain offer similar pain relief and overall improvement to
placebo with a higher risk of adverse side-effects. (4) Another
study shares that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the
difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically significant.
It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Chiropractic Care’s
