The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR Helps Relieve Post-Surgical Back Pain

Back surgery. It’s an option some choose for back pain relief. About 50% of them report relief at one year later. What’s next? More back surgery? More pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR would add chiropractic care as a viable option before back surgery, and The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR  welcomes back pain patients to the Colorado Springs back pain specialty practice even if they have already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical method to relieve Colorado Springs spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that offers much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. It fulfills Colorado Springs back pain patients’ desire for relief. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR presents it to their Colorado Springs 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 surely not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to ponder let alone experience. It happens though. Often another surgery is not the desired answer for these particular back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is referred for physical therapy, recommended medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient wants to try anything but those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR stands ready with its Colorado Springs 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 is shown 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 decide what is best for dealing with 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 plausible 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 is really appealing. Any human physician wants to help a person in pain get rid of that. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR certainly does. Our Colorado Springs back pain sufferers are thankful when they get relief after care.

So The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR shares these recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Colorado Springs 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 showed greater 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 report that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are noted in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient responds well to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, reporting pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR finds that a combination approach for pain relief is usually most beneficial for our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients.

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR makes a chiropractic treatment plan designed for each Colorado Springs chiropractic patient that involves the following: recommendation of a variety of approaches as appropriate, interaction with fellow healthcare colleagues as necessary, presentation of the newest in clinical outcomes of care options existing, and standing by you, our Colorado Springs post-surgical continued back pain patient, through it all.
