No Adverse Effects Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators Treated with Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation
In a new report, authors report on
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
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
