Ottawa Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain After Back Surgery Surgery and Integrates Extension Exercise into the Treatment Plan

The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider offers back pain relief to patients who have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. 

Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.

Most Ottawa back pain patients choose back surgery expecting Ottawa back pain relief. That expectation is not always met. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider hears this from Ottawa back surgery patients and studies it in the spine research reports.  49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) due to a disc herniation is usual. (1) Post-surgical back pain patients may discover that they experience back pain after Ottawa back surgery. What are some options? Spinal manipulation and exercise is one relieving option. The American College of Physicians and American Pain Society suggest spinal manipulation for low back pain relief. (2) One patient reported 89% improvement with 12 spinal manipulation sessions plus exercise. (3) A study of 69 post-surgical back pain patients cared for with Cox® Technic - like they are at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider – discovered that 81% of patients exhibited at least 50% reduction of pain at the end of 3 months of care. 78.6% of those patients had continued pain relief at 24 months follow up. (4) Ottawa chiropractic relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation of back pain relief. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider invites you or a suffering friend or family member to visit today.

Listen to this PODCAST on The Back Doctors’ Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson in which Dr. David Atiyeh shares the case of a patient who had experienced back surgery expecting pain relief and post-surgically found pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.

The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider recommends extensor strengthening exercises when back pain patients are ready for them.

Extension Exercise

Ottawa back pain sufferers often experience relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing backward into extension. (Read the SPINE article May 2018 on our website about why!) Extension is not all bad. A healthy spine can extend. A healthy spine needs solid back muscles to support all its motions. Strengthening those extensor muscles to prevent Ottawa back pain is essential. Research shows that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in Ottawa chiropractic patients with chronic low back pain. (5) Why? Back muscles degenerate in back pain sufferers like spinal discs degenerate. (6) Add extension exercises into your day when your Ottawa chiropractor tells you it’s time to do so. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider can help!
