Back surgery. It
is an option some choose to get relief of their
back pain. About 50% of them report relief at one year
later. What then? More back surgery? Additional
pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic?
Tarrytown Chiropractic would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile approach
before back surgery, and Tarrytown Chiropractic welcomes back pain patients to the
Tarrytown back pain specialty practice even if they’ve
already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic
is a non-surgical method to alleviate
Tarrytown 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. Cox
Technic fulfills Tarrytown back pain patients’ desire for
Tarrytown Chiropractic offers it to their Tarrytown 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 certainly not one a
post-surgical back pain patient wants to ponder let alone deal
with. It happens though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these types of back pain sufferers.
Often such a patient is transferred to physical therapy, advised to try
medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a
patient wants to try anything but those medical
approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else
before back surgery. Tarrytown Chiropractic stands ready with its Tarrytown
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 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 proficient,
and meet patient expectations and preferences. That is 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.
How does one make that decision though? When a surgeon proposes surgery or a pain medicine doctor
offers medication or a physical therapist offers exercise or a chiropractor
offers spinal manipulation in one form or another, how does the relief-seeking Tarrytown
back pain patient decide? Have all of these providers share
with 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. Tarrytown Chiropractic certainly does.
Our Tarrytown back pain sufferers are grateful
when they get relief after care.

So Tarrytown Chiropractic wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome
articles with Tarrytown 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 more
than 50% relief of pain at the conclusion of care (3 months) in a mean of
49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% continued with their 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 noted in their findings. (4) Finally,
a post-surgical patient responds well to
rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering
pain dropping from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits
in 3 months. (5) Tarrytown Chiropractic finds that a
combination approach for pain relief is often most
beneficial for our Tarrytown chiropractic patients.
