No Adverse Effects
Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators
In a new report, authors report on
treatment outcomes of patients with implanted spinal stimulators for
post-surgical continued back pain management. Patients with these
devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain after back surgery. 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”. This study shows how spinal manipulation and
mobilization do just that. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation offers Baton Rouge
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 does not rotate
as much. This will likely have long term effects on the
spine. (2) What to do? Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Seek Baton Rouge
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!
National guidelines suggest that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. How many of us
Baton Rouge 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. They also experience
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so important. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation urges all of our
Baton Rouge chiropractic patients to do something every day like take a
Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective
A meta-analysis, the
highest form of research reporting, shares that NSAIDSeven
though they are 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) NSAIDs are
reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference
is not clinically significant between NSAIDs and placebo.
It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation
