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
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. (5) Well, Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center’s
non-drug Pensacola chiropractic care is pain-relieving! Contact Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center today
