Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery West Palm Beach Chiropractic Care and Exercise

Before undergoing back surgery, West Palm Beach back pain sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps sharing the value of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. InWest Palm Beach Chiropractic Care is the chiropractic care clinic for both!


Self-care is frequently proposed as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that does not produce the desired results, including 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 suggested by medical physician organizations like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Chiropractic Care specializes in a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well help West Palm Beach back pain sufferers evade back surgery and manage their back pain more independently.


Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves as much as possible. Chiropractic Care realizes this. Exercise is documented to be valuable for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper form of exercise is key, so we’ll discuss what is suitable for you! Maybe Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based exercise program found that the pain patients better functioned and managed their pain condition more independently and effectively. They performed better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising, did more to make do with their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, motivated them to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits came 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 gained benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain sufferers’ frame of mind got better as they exercised. They had time to reflect on their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t describe symptom improvement responded well to this program as they felt more confident managing their pain themselves. (4) These are all beneficial outcomes West Palm Beach back pain patients discover in their chiropractic care at Chiropractic Care. Control not cure is a reasonable objective when dealing with back pain.
