Cross Chiropractic Center Helps Relieve Post-Surgical Back Pain

Back surgery. It is an option some choose to get relief of their back pain. At one year follow up, generally around 50% of surgical patients report continued relief. What then? More back surgery? More pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Cross Chiropractic Center would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile option before back surgery, and Cross Chiropractic Center  welcomes back pain patients to the Sandy Springs back pain specialty practice even if they have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical method to alleviate Sandy Springs spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that is founded on evidence-based research with documented clinical outcomes of relieving and controlling back pain. Cox Technic satisfies Sandy Springs back pain patients seeking relief. Cross Chiropractic Center offers it to their Sandy Springs back pain patients if they find themselves with post-surgical continued pain or the condition diagnosis of “failed back surgery syndrome” (FBSS).

Post Surgical Continued Pain Diagnosis 

A FBSS diagnosis is surely not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to consider let alone deal with. It happens though. Often another surgery is not the desired answer for these particular back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is referred for physical therapy, prescribed medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient wants to try anything but those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Cross Chiropractic Center stands ready with its Sandy Springs chiropractic care to assist at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic is shown to be equally effective as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report goes on to say that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be based on patient preference and values.” (1) That is what evidence-based medicine is all about: seek out the best evidence from the research, seek care from the back pain specialist who is clinically adept, and meet patient expectations and preferences. That is what chiropractic research continues to do: produce the research and publish the outcomes for the public to base its decision on what is best for dealing with their back pain.

Decision Making 

How to decide though? When a surgeon offers surgery or a pain medicine doctor offers medication or a physical therapist offers exercise or a chiropractor offers spinal manipulation in one form or another, how does the relief-seeking Sandy Springs back pain patient decide? Have all of these providers present patients with unbiased information about the potential benefits and risks of the options. (2) Everyone knows though that when the pain is intense, the first offer of relief looks really good. Being human, the healthcare provider seeing a patient in pain wants to help that back pain patient get rid of the pain fast, too. Cross Chiropractic Center certainly does. Our Sandy Springs back pain sufferers are appreciative when they get relief after care.

So Cross Chiropractic Center shares these recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Sandy Springs back pain patients: spinal manipulation relief for post-surgical continued pain patients and for post-implanted and currently wearing spinal stimulator patients. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients, 80% of patients showed greater than 50% relief of pain at the conclusion of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% reported 50% relief of pain at 24 months follow up. The amount of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers report that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are noted in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient responds positively to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, reporting pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Cross Chiropractic Center observes that a combination approach for pain relief is usually best for our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients.

Cross Chiropractic Center makes a chiropractic treatment plan custom-made for each Sandy Springs chiropractic patient that involves the following: recommendation of a variety of approaches as appropriate, cooperation with fellow healthcare colleagues as needed, presentation of the latest in clinical outcomes of care options existing, and standing by you, our Sandy Springs post-surgical continued back pain patient, all the way.
