PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research states that those who undergo rehabilitation after back disc surgery have 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 choice or by not being told to do so. For those who experience continued pain after back surgery (also called “failed back surgical syndrome”), Malverne chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without further surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients visiting a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds that 81% of these patients gained greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be sufficient 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 feeling back pain post-back surgery, Malverne Health & Wellness can help with gentle, research-documented, Malverne chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is good 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 describe that physical exercise doesn’t deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances 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 Malverne Health & Wellness about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Malverne chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
