Amelia Chiropractic Clinics September 2017 Healthy Newsletter


Research reports that those who go through rehabilitation after back disc surgery find themselves with better treatment outcomes in the year after the back surgery. They go back to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being told to do so. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also referred to as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Fernandina Beach chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without another surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic documents that 81% of these patients gained more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be adequate relief to get these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehabilitation after back surgery and/or are undergoing back pain post-back surgery, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic can help with gentle, research-documented, Fernandina Beach chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is beneficial 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 does not deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your odds of low back pain. (4) Talk with Amelia Chiropractic Clinic about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Fernandina Beach chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
