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
Chronic neck pain patients seem to walk more stiffly.
Why? Their stride is shorter and their mid-spine does not rotate
as much. Walking like this will affect the
spine well into the future. (2) What to do? Cross Chiropractic Center’s recommendation: 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. Our
Sandy Springs chiropractic practice 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
A meta-analysis, the
highest form of research reporting, shares that NSAIDSdespite their being. one of the most frequently prescribed
drugs for sciatic leg pain offer similar pain relief and overall improvement to
placebo with a higher risk of adverse side-effects. (4) Another
study shares that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the
difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically important.
It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Cross Chiropractic Center
