CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is often recommended
as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t produce the desired results, 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 suggested
by medical physician organizations like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center specializes in
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well assist
Pensacola back pain sufferers refrain from back
surgery and control their back pain more self-sufficiently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers want to help themselves
as much as possible. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center realizes this. Exercise is documented
to be valuable for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper form
of exercise is important, so we will discuss what is proper for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based
exercise program found 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 motivated to keep exercising,
did more to make do with their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, helped them enjoy
a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits resulted
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers established a trial of exercise for
back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They explained
the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They established exercise programs for each patient to perform. They
found that back pain patients who experienced
this pre-surgery program of description and exercise gained
benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ frame of mind improved as they exercised. They had time to mull
over their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t
describe symptom improvement reacted well to this
program as they felt more confident managing their pain themselves. (4)
These are all beneficial outcomes Pensacola back pain
patients discover in their chiropractic care at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center.
Control not cure is a realistic goal when coping
with back pain.
