PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research reports that those who take advantage of rehabilitation after back disc surgery experience better treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients do not undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being directed to do so. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also referred to as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Ashburn chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without further surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients visiting a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds that 81% of these patients gained greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be enough relief to allow these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are undergoing back pain post-back surgery, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn can help with gentle, research-documented, Ashburn chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is good for the nutrition of your spinal discs! The discs are made up of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise does not deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus performing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your chances of low back pain. (4) Ask Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Ashburn chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
