PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research states that those who take advantage of rehabilitation after back disc surgery experience better treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They go back to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being directed to do so. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Sandy Springs chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without another surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients visiting a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds that 81% of these patients gained more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be ample relief to allow these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are undergoing back pain post-back surgery, Cross Chiropractic Center can help with gentle, research-documented, Sandy Springs chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is good for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise doesn’t reduce glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your chances of low back pain. (4) Talk with Cross Chiropractic Center about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
