Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects

In a new report, authors share treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal stimulators for pain management after back surgery. Patients with these devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain after back surgery. After being treated with chiropractic spinal manipulation or mobilization, patients with these stimulators reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a physician is “Do no harm”. This study shows how spinal manipulation and mobilization do just that. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic offers Fernandina Beach chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!

Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly

Patients with chronic neck pain have a shorter stride and less thoracic spinal rotation when walking. This will likely have long term effects on the spine. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic’s best advice: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Seek Fernandina Beach chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.

Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!

National guidelines suggest that we all get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. How many of us Fernandina Beach folks do? Just 52%! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It is shown that 150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back pain patients going. These post-surgical patients also experience less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so important. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic promotes a walk a day to all Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients.

Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar

A meta-analysis, the highest form of research reporting, reports that NSAIDSdespite their being. one of the most frequently prescribed drugs for sciatic leg pain offer similar pain relief and overall improvement to placebo with a higher risk of adverse side-effects. (4) NSAIDs are reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference is not clinically relevant between NSAIDs and placebo. It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo.
