Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery Pflugerville Chiropractic Care and Exercise

Before undergoing back surgery, Pflugerville back pain sufferers can benefit from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research continues to share the value of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. Pflugerville Wellness Center is the chiropractic care office in Pflugerville for both!


Self-care is often suggested as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that does not work, adding 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 groups like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center uses a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment called Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well help Pflugerville back pain sufferers avoid back surgery and manage their back pain more self-sufficiently.


Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves as much as possible. Pflugerville Wellness Center realizes this. Exercise is shown valuable for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper form of exercise is key, so we will talk about what’s proper for you! Maybe Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based exercise program revealed that the pain patients better functioned and coped with 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 manage their own pain conditions without outside help. These, in turn, motivated them to experience a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits arose without back surgery.


Researchers set up a trial of exercise for back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They described the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They established exercise programs for each patient to do. They discovered that back pain patients who experienced this pre-surgery program of explanation and exercise benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers felt better 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 did not report symptom improvement responded well to this program as they felt more confident managing their pain themselves. (4) These are all beneficial outcomes Pflugerville back pain patients discover in their chiropractic care at Pflugerville Wellness Center. Control not cure is a reasonable objective when dealing with back pain.
