PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research reports that those who undergo rehab4 after back disc surgery experience better treatment outcomes in the year after the back surgery. They go back to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being directed to do so. For those who face continued pain after back surgery (also referred to as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Pensacola chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without another surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeking care from a chiropractor using Cox Technic documents that 81% of these patients achieved more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be adequate relief to allow these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are undergoing back pain post-back surgery, Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center can help with gentle, research-documented, Pensacola chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is helpful for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise doesn’t deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus performing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your chances of low back pain. (4) Talk with Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Pensacola chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
