Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, researchers 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 post
surgically. 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”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule
in this study’s findings. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn offers Ashburn
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!
Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly
Chronic neck pain patients seem to walk more stiffly.
Why? Their stride is shorter and their mid-spine doesn’t rotate
as much. Walking like this will affect the
spine well into the future. (2) What to do? Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain become chronic. Seek Ashburn
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 a week. Only 52% of us Ashburn non-back
pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It’s shown that
150 minutes keeps post-surgical back pain patients moving and away from
another surgery. These post-surgical patients also have
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so important. Our
Ashburn chiropractic practice urges all of our
Ashburn chiropractic patients to do something every day like take a
Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective
NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall
improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new
meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one
of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) Another
study reports that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the
difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically significant.
It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn’s
