PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research states that those who go through 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 do not undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being told to do it. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also referred to as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Pflugerville chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without another surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients visiting a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients achieved greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be ample relief to return 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, Pflugerville Wellness Center can help with gentle, research-documented, Pflugerville chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is helpful for the nutrition of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise doesn’t reduce glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your chances of low back pain. (4) Talk with Pflugerville Wellness Center about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Pflugerville chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
