Tarrytown Chiropractic Relief for Back Pain After Surgery

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 relief. 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 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 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.

Decision Making 

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.

Every Tarrytown chiropractic patient is matched with his or her very own, personalized treatment plan that involves the following: combination of approaches as appropriate, interaction with fellow healthcare colleagues as needed, presentation of the newest in clinical outcomes of care options available, and support for you, our Tarrytown post-surgical continued back pain patient, all the way.
