Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery Tarrytown Chiropractic Care and Exercise

Before undergoing back surgery, Tarrytown back pain sufferers can benefit from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps sharing the value of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. Tarrytown Chiropractic is the chiropractic care office in Tarrytown for both!


Self-care is often suggested as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that does not work, adding 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) Tarrytown Chiropractic uses a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment known as Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well help Tarrytown back pain sufferers refrain from back surgery and manage their back pain more self-sufficiently.


Back pain sufferers want to help themselves as much as possible. Tarrytown Chiropractic realizes this. Exercise is documented to be positive for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right form of exercise is vital, so we will talk about what is suitable for you! Maybe Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based exercise program found that the pain patients better functioned and managed their pain condition more independently and efficiently. They did better at work, took pleasure in hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising, did more to manage their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, motivated them to discover a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits resulted without back surgery.


Researchers established a trial of exercise for back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They described the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They set up exercise programs for each patient to perform. They found that back pain patients who experienced this pre-surgery program of description and exercise gained benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain sufferers’ frame of mind improved as they exercised. They had time to reflect on their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t report symptom improvement reacted well to this program as they felt more confident managing their pain themselves. (4) These are all positive outcomes Tarrytown back pain patients find in their chiropractic care at Tarrytown Chiropractic. Control not cure is a reasonable objective when dealing with back pain.
