Pensacola Chiropractic Relief for Back Pain After Surgery

Back surgery. It’s an option some choose for back pain relief. About 50% of them report relief at one year later. What’s next? More back surgery? Additional pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile option before back surgery, and Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center  welcomes back pain patients to the Pensacola back pain specialty practice even if they have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical approach to relieve Pensacola spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that offers much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. It fulfills Pensacola back pain patients’ desire for relief. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center offers it to their Pensacola 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 ponder let alone deal with. It happens though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these particular back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is transferred to physical therapy, recommended 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. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center stands ready with its Pensacola chiropractic care to help at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic shows itself to be equally beneficial as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report further states 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, pursue 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 does one make that decision 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 Pensacola back pain patient decide? Have all of these providers share with 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 is really appealing. Any human physician wants to help a person in pain get rid of that. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center certainly does. Our Pensacola back pain sufferers are grateful when they get relief after care.

So Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center shares these recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Pensacola 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 end of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% continued with their 50% relief of pain at 24 months follow up. The percent of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers state that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are seen 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center notices that a combination approach for pain relief is usually most beneficial for our Pensacola chiropractic patients.

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center creates a chiropractic treatment plan tailored for each Pensacola chiropractic patient that involves the following: combination of approaches as appropriate, cooperation with fellow healthcare colleagues as necessary, presentation of the newest in clinical outcomes of care options available, and support for you, our Pensacola post-surgical continued back pain patient, all the way.
