Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, researchers share
treatment outcomes of patients with implanted spinal stimulators for
post-surgical continued back pain management. Patients with these
devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain post
surgically. After being treated with chiropractic spinal
manipulation or mobilization, the patients in
the study reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a
physician is “Do no harm”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule
in this study’s findings. Back And Neck Care Center offers Severna Park
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. This will likely have long term effects on the
spine. (2) What to do? Back And Neck Care Center’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Seek Severna Park
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
minutes of Exercise a Week – For All of Us Especially After Back Surgery
National guidelines suggest that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise a week. Only 52% of us Severna Park non-back
pain folks do this! 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. They also experience
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so important. Back And Neck Care Center encourages a simple walk a day to all Severna Park chiropractic
Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective
A meta-analysis, the
highest form of research reporting, shares that NSAIDSeven
though they are 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 relevant between NSAIDs and placebo.
It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Back And Neck Care Center’s
