Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery Sandy Springs Chiropractic Care and Exercise

Before undergoing back surgery, Sandy Springs back pain sufferers can benefit from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research continues to share the value of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. InSandy Springs Cross Chiropractic Center is the chiropractic care clinic for both!


Self-care is frequently proposed as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t work, including non-drug therapy for acute low back pain – spinal manipulation – and for chronic or subacute back pain – spinal manipulation, intensive interdisciplinary rehab, exercise, acupuncture, massage, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy - is promoted by medical physician organizations like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center specializes in a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment known as Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well help Sandy Springs back pain sufferers evade back surgery and control their back pain more self-sufficiently.


Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves as much as possible. Cross Chiropractic Center realizes this. Exercise is documented to be advantageous for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper type of exercise is key, so we’ll talk about what’s suitable for you! Maybe Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based exercise program revealed that the pain patients better functioned and managed their pain condition more independently and effectively. They performed better at work, took pleasure in hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising, did more to make do with their own pain conditions without outside help. These, in turn, helped them experience a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits arose without back surgery.


Researchers established a trial of exercise for back pain patients headed to back surgery. They explained the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They set up exercise programs for each patient to perform. They discovered that back pain patients who underwent this pre-surgery program of explanation and exercise gained benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers felt better exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain sufferers’ mood got better as they exercised. They had time to mull over their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not describe symptom improvement reacted well to this program as they felt more confident managing their pain themselves. (4) These are all beneficial outcomes Sandy Springs back pain patients discover in their chiropractic care at Cross Chiropractic Center. Control not cure is a realistic goal when coping with back pain.
