PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research states that those who undergo rehabilitation after back disc surgery have 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 it. For those who experience continued pain after back surgery (also known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Tarrytown chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without further surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeking care from a chiropractor using Cox Technic documents that 81% of these patients acquired greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be adequate relief to return these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are suffering back pain post-back surgery, Tarrytown Chiropractic can help with gentle, research-documented, Tarrytown chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is helpful for the nutrition of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise doesn’t deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your odds of low back pain. (4) Ask Tarrytown Chiropractic about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Tarrytown chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
