Watertown Chiropractic Care of Continued Back Pain after Back Surgery

Back surgery. It’s an option some choose for back pain relief. At one year follow up, generally around 50% of surgical patients report continued relief. What then? Another back surgery? More pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Watertown Wellness Center would add chiropractic care as a viable approach before back surgery, and Watertown Wellness Center  welcomes back pain patients to the Watertown back pain specialty practice even if they’ve already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical approach to alleviate Watertown spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that has much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. It satisfies Watertown back pain patients seeking relief. Watertown Wellness Center presents it to their Watertown 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 deal with. It happens though. Often another surgery is not 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 welcomes options beyond those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Watertown Wellness Center stands ready with its Watertown 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 shows itself to be equally beneficial as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report further states that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be based on patient preference and values.” (1) That’s 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 managing their back pain.

Decision Making 

How does one make that decision though? Surgeons, pain control specialists, physical therapists and chiropractors all offer their various approaches that seem workable for relief, the pain suffering patient may have trouble deciding. What might help? Have all of these providers share with 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 looks really good. Any human physician wants to help a person in pain get rid of that. Watertown Wellness Center certainly does. Our Watertown back pain sufferers are appreciative when they get relief after care.

So Watertown Wellness Center wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Watertown 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 demonstrated 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 amount of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers state 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 reacts positively to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Watertown Wellness Center finds that a combination approach for pain relief is usually most productive for our Watertown chiropractic patients.

Watertown Wellness Center makes a chiropractic treatment plan custom-made for each Watertown chiropractic patient that involves the following: recommendation of a variety of approaches as appropriate, interaction with fellow healthcare colleagues as necessary, presentation of the latest in clinical outcomes of care options existing, and standing by you, our Watertown post-surgical continued back pain patient, all the way.
