Lynchburg Chiropractic Relief for Back Pain After Surgery

Back surgery. It is 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? Palmer Chiropractic Center would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile option before back surgery, and Palmer Chiropractic Center  welcomes back pain patients to the Lynchburg back pain specialty practice even if they’ve already undergone back surgery and still have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical approach to alleviate Lynchburg spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that is based on evidence-based research with documented clinical outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. Cox Technic satisfies Lynchburg back pain patients seeking relief. Palmer Chiropractic Center offers it to their Lynchburg 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’s a possibility though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these particular back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is referred for physical therapy, advised to try 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. Palmer Chiropractic Center stands ready with its Lynchburg chiropractic care to assist 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 is 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 managing 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 reasonable 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. Any human physician wants to help a person in pain get rid of that. Palmer Chiropractic Center certainly does. Our Lynchburg back pain sufferers are appreciative when they get relief after care.

So Palmer Chiropractic Center wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Lynchburg 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 amount 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 noted in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient responds positively 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center finds that a combination approach for pain relief is usually most beneficial for our Lynchburg chiropractic patients.
