Pflugerville Wellness Center Helps Relieve Post-Surgical Back Pain

Back surgery. It’s an option some choose to get relief of their back pain. At one year follow up, generally around 50% of surgical patients report continued relief. What then? More back surgery? Additional pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Pflugerville Wellness Center would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile approach before back surgery, and Pflugerville Wellness Center  welcomes back pain patients to the Pflugerville back pain specialty practice even if they’ve already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical method to relieve Pflugerville spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that offers much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. Cox Technic satisfies Pflugerville back pain patients seeking relief. Pflugerville Wellness Center offers it to their Pflugerville back pain patients if they find themselves with post-surgical continued pain or the condition diagnosis of “failed back surgery syndrome” (FBSS).

Post Surgical Continued Pain Diagnosis 

A FBSS diagnosis is certainly not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to consider let alone experience. It happens though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these particular back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is transferred to physical therapy, prescribed medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient wants to try anything but those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Pflugerville Wellness Center stands ready with its Pflugerville chiropractic care to help at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic is shown to be equally beneficial as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report goes on to say that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be based on patient preference and values.” (1) That is what evidence-based medicine is all about: seek out the best evidence from the research, seek care from the back pain specialist who is clinically adept, and meet patient expectations and preferences. That’s what chiropractic research continues to do: produce the research and publish the outcomes for the public to base its decision on what is best for dealing with their back pain.

Decision Making 

How does one make that decision though? When a surgeon proposes surgery or a pain medicine doctor offers medication or a physical therapist offers exercise or a chiropractor offers spinal manipulation in one form or another, how does the relief-seeking Pflugerville back pain patient decide? Have all of these providers present patients with unbiased information about the potential benefits and risks of the options. (2) Everyone knows though that when the pain is intense, the first offer of relief is really appealing. Being human, the healthcare provider seeing a patient in pain wants to help that back pain patient get rid of the pain fast, too. Pflugerville Wellness Center certainly does. Our Pflugerville back pain sufferers are appreciative when they get relief after care.

So Pflugerville Wellness Center wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Pflugerville back pain patients: spinal manipulation relief for post-surgical continued pain patients and for post-implanted and currently wearing spinal stimulator patients. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients, 80% of patients showed more than 50% relief of pain at the end of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% reported 50% relief of pain at 24 months follow up. The percent of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers report that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are observed in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient responds positively to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering pain dropping from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Pflugerville Wellness Center observes that a combination approach for pain relief is often best for our Pflugerville chiropractic patients.

Pflugerville Wellness Center creates a chiropractic treatment plan tailored for each Pflugerville chiropractic patient that involves the following: combination of approaches as appropriate, interaction with fellow healthcare colleagues as necessary, presentation of the latest in clinical outcomes of care options available, and standing by you, our Pflugerville post-surgical continued back pain patient, through it all.
