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!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
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 self-sufficiently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
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 manage their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, motivated them to enjoy
a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits came
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE 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.
