PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research documents that those who go through rehab4 after back disc surgery find themselves with better treatment outcomes in the year after the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being directed to do so. For those who face continued pain after back surgery (also known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Ottawa chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without further surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic documents that 81% of these patients acquired greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be adequate relief to get these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend did not do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are undergoing back pain post-back surgery, The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider can help with gentle, research-documented, Ottawa 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 describe that physical exercise doesn’t lessen glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your odds of low back pain. (4) Talk with The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Ottawa chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
