PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research documents that those who take advantage of rehab4 after back disc surgery find themselves with better treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being directed to do it. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Colorado Springs chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without another surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients visiting a chiropractor using Cox Technic documents that 81% of these patients acquired more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be adequate relief to allow 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 feeling back pain post-back surgery, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR can help with gentle, research-documented, Colorado Springs chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is good for the nutrition of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise doesn’t reduce 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) Ask The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
