Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center’s Healthy News for March 2017

No Adverse Effects Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators Treated with Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation

In a new report, researchers report on treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal stimulators for pain management after back surgery. Patients with these devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain post surgically. 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”. This study shows how spinal manipulation and mobilization do just that. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center offers Pensacola 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center’s best advice: Don’t let neck pain become chronic. Get Pensacola chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk more easily.

Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!

National guidelines recommend that we all get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. How many of us Pensacola folks do? Just 52%! 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. These post-surgical patients also have less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so important. Our Pensacola chiropractic practice promotes a walk a day to all Pensacola chiropractic patients.

Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective Over Placebo

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) NSAIDs are reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference is not clinically significant between NSAIDs and placebo. It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo.
