Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation Helps Relieve Post-Surgical Back Pain

Back surgery. It is an option some choose for back pain relief. At one year follow up, generally around 50% of surgical patients report continued relief. What then? More back surgery? Additional pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile approach before back surgery, and Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation  welcomes back pain patients to the Baton Rouge back pain specialty practice even if they’ve already undergone back surgery and still have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical method to alleviate Baton Rouge spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that is based on evidence-based research with documented clinical outcomes of relieving and controlling back pain. It fulfills Baton Rouge back pain patients’ desire for relief. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation presents it to their Baton Rouge 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 deal with. It happens though. Often another surgery is not the desired answer for these types of back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is transferred to physical therapy, prescribed medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient welcomes options beyond those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation stands ready with its Baton Rouge chiropractic care to aid at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic shows itself to be equally beneficial as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report goes on to say 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 workable for relief, the pain suffering patient may have trouble deciding. What might help? Have all of these providers provide 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. Being human, the healthcare provider seeing a patient in pain wants to help that back pain patient get rid of the pain fast, too. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation certainly does. Our Baton Rouge back pain sufferers are appreciative when they get relief after care.

So Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Baton Rouge 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 conclusion 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 percent of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers state that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are observed in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient responds well to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, reporting pain dropping from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation finds that a combination approach for pain relief is usually best for our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients.
