CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently proposed
as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that does
not produce the desired results, including 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 groups like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Palmer Chiropractic Center delivers
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment known
as Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well help
Lynchburg back pain sufferers avoid back
surgery and control their back pain more self-sufficiently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers want to help themselves
as much as possible. Palmer Chiropractic Center knows this. Exercise is documented
to be useful for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper type
of exercise is vital, so we will talk
about what is proper for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based
exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned
and coped with their pain condition more autonomously
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, motivated them to 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 explained
the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They set
up exercise programs for each patient to do. They
discovered that back pain patients who experienced
this pre-surgery program of explanation and exercise benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ disposition got
better as they exercised. They had time to contemplate their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not
describe symptom improvement reacted well to this
program as they thought themselves more confident managing their pain themselves. (4)
These are all beneficial outcomes Lynchburg back pain
patients discover in their chiropractic care at Palmer Chiropractic Center.
Control not cure is a reasonable goal when coping
with back pain.
