Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, researchers report on
treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal
stimulators for pain management after back surgery. Patients with these
devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain post
surgically. After being treated with chiropractic spinal
manipulation or mobilization, patients with these stimulators reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a
physician is “Do no harm”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule
in this study’s findings. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers Colorado Springs
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!
Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly
Chronic neck pain patients seem to walk more stiffly.
Why? Their stride is shorter and their mid-spine doesn’t rotate
as much. Walking like this will affect the
spine well into the future. (2) What to do? The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain become chronic. Seek Colorado Springs
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk more easily.
Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!
National guidelines recommend that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. How many of us
Colorado Springs folks do? Just 52%! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It is shown that
150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back
pain patients going. These post-surgical patients also have
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so important. Our
Colorado Springs chiropractic practice urges all of our
Colorado Springs chiropractic patients to do something every day like take a
Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar
A meta-analysis, the
highest form of research reporting, reports that NSAIDSdespite their being. one of the most frequently prescribed
drugs for sciatic leg pain offer similar pain relief and overall improvement to
placebo with a higher risk of adverse side-effects. (4) Another
study reports that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the
difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically important.
It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR
