Colorado Springs Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain After Back Surgery Surgery and Integrates Extension Exercise into the Treatment Plan

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers back pain relief to patients who have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. 

Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.

Most Colorado Springs back pain patients go to back surgery expecting Colorado Springs back pain relief. That expectation isn’t always met. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR hears this from Colorado Springs back surgery patients and reads it in the spine research reports.  49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) due to a disc herniation is usual. (1) Post-surgical back pain patients may discover that they experience back pain after Colorado Springs back surgery. What are some choices? Spinal manipulation and exercise is one such option. The American College of Physicians and American Pain Society recommend spinal manipulation for low back pain relief. (2) One patient experienced 89% improvement with 12 spinal manipulation sessions plus exercise. (3) A study of 69 post-surgical back pain patients treated with Cox® Technic - like they are at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR – found that 81% of patients showed at least 50% reduction of pain at the end of 3 months of care. 78.6% of those patients had persistent pain relief at 24 months follow up. (4) Colorado Springs chiropractic relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation of back pain relief. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR invites you or a suffering friend or family member to visit today.

Listen to this PODCAST on The Back Doctors’ Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson in which Dr. David Atiyeh describes a patient who had undergone back surgery expecting pain relief and post-surgically found pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR recommends extensor strengthening exercises when back pain patients are ready for them.

Extension Exercise

Colorado Springs back pain sufferers frequently find relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing backward into extension. (Check out the SPINE article May 2018 on our website about why!) Extension is not all bad. A healthy spine can extend. A healthy spine needs strong back muscles to support all its motions. Strengthening those extensor muscles to stop Colorado Springs back pain is essential. Research shows that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in Colorado Springs chiropractic patients with chronic low back pain. (5) Why? Back muscles degenerate in back pain sufferers like spinal discs degenerate. (6) Add extension exercises into your day when your Colorado Springs chiropractor tells you it’s time to do so. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR can help!
