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. Our
Fernandina Beach chiropractic practice 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. (5) Well, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
