Ashburn Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain After Back Surgery Surgery and Integrates Extension Exercise into the Treatment Plan

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn offers back pain relief to patients who have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. 

Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.

Many Ashburn back pain patients go to back surgery expecting Ashburn back pain relief. That expectation isn’t always met. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn hears this from Ashburn back surgery patients and reads it in the spine research reports.  49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) due to a disc herniation is common. (1) Post-surgical back pain patients may discover that they have back pain after Ashburn back surgery. What are some options? Spinal manipulation and exercise is one relieving option. The American College of Physicians and American Pain Society recommend spinal manipulation for low back pain relief. (2) One patient experienced 89% improvement with 12 spinal manipulation sessions plus exercise. (3) A study of 69 post-surgical back pain patients treated with Cox® Technic - like they are at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn – discovered that 81% of patients exhibited at least 50% reduction of pain at the end of 3 months of care. 78.6% of those patients had continued pain relief at 2 years’ follow up. (4) Ashburn chiropractic relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation of back pain relief. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn invites you or a suffering friend or family member to visit today.

Listen to this PODCAST on The Back Doctors’ Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson in which Dr. David Atiyeh shares the case of a patient who had experienced back surgery expecting pain relief and post-surgically found pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn recommends extensor strengthening exercises when back pain patients are ready for them.

Extension Exercise

Ashburn back pain sufferers often find relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing backward into extension. (Read the SPINE article May 2018 on our website about why!) Extension is not all bad. A healthy spine can extend. A healthy spine requires strong back muscles to support all its motions. Strengthening those extensor muscles to prevent Ashburn back pain is important. Research reports that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in Ashburn chiropractic patients with chronic low back pain. (5) Why? Back muscles degenerate in back pain sufferers like spinal discs degenerate. (6) Integrate extension exercises into your day when your Ashburn chiropractor tells you it is time to do so. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn can help!
