CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently proposed
as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t work, adding non-drug
therapy for acute low back pain – spinal manipulation – and for chronic or subacute
back pain – spinal manipulation, intensive interdisciplinary rehab, exercise,
acupuncture, massage, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy - is promoted
by medical physician organizations like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR delivers

Colorado Springs back pain sufferers refrain from back
surgery and control their back pain more independently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF

pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper type
of exercise is important, so we will talk
about what is right for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based
exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned
and coped with their pain condition more independently
and efficiently. They performed better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising,
did more to make do with their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, helped them discover
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits resulted
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers established a trial of exercise for
back pain patients headed to back surgery. They described
the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They established exercise programs for each patient to do. They
found that back pain patients who underwent
this pre-surgery program of explanation and exercise benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers felt better
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ disposition got
better as they exercised. They had time to reflect on their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not
describe symptom improvement responded well to this
program as they thought themselves more confident managing their pain themselves. (4)
These are all positive outcomes Colorado Springs back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR.
