PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research reports that those who undergo rehabilitation after back disc surgery find themselves with better treatment outcomes in the year after the back surgery. They go back to work. (1) Some back surgery patients do not undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being told to do so. For those who experience continued pain after back surgery (also known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Baton Rouge chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without another surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients visiting a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients acquired more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be sufficient relief to get these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehabilitation after back surgery and/or are experiencing back pain post-back surgery, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation can help with gentle, research-documented, Baton Rouge chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is good for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise doesn’t reduce glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your odds of low back pain. (4) Ask Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
