Cross Chiropractic Center’s Healthy News for March 2017

No Adverse Effects Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators Treated with Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation

In a new report, authors share 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, patients with these stimulators 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. Cross Chiropractic Center offers Sandy Springs 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. Walking like this will affect the spine well into the future. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center’s best advice: Don’t let neck pain become chronic. Seek Sandy Springs chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.

Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!

National guidelines suggest that we all get 150 minutes of exercise a week. Only 52% of us Sandy Springs non-back pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It’s shown that 150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back pain patients going. They also have less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so important. Cross Chiropractic Center urges all of our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients to do something every day like take a little walk.

Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar

NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) NSAIDs are reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference is not clinically relevant between NSAIDs and placebo. It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Cross Chiropractic Center’s non-drug Sandy Springs chiropractic care is pain-relieving! Contact Cross Chiropractic Center today for an appointment.

It may be the month of luck and green-leafed clovers, but luck is also being prepared for the opportunity/issue/problem before us. When it comes to back pain, neck pain, arm pain and leg pain, Cross Chiropractic Center is. Our Sandy Springs chiropractic care practice is pleased to share these new advances and findings with our Sandy Springs chiropractic friends and family!
