PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research reports that those who undergo rehab4 after back disc surgery find themselves with more favorable treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They return 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 called “failed back surgical syndrome”), Watertown chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without further surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients visiting a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds 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 get these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehabilitation after back surgery and/or are undergoing back pain post-back surgery, Watertown Wellness Center can help with gentle, research-documented, Watertown 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 made up of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise doesn’t deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances 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 Watertown Wellness Center about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Watertown chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
