Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, researchers share
treatment outcomes of patients with implanted spinal stimulators for
post-surgical continued back pain management. 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, the patients in
the study 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. Layden Chiropractic offers Plainville
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) What to do? Layden Chiropractic’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Seek Plainville
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!
National guidelines recommend that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise a week. How many of us
Plainville folks do? Just 52%! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It is 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
Plainville chiropractic practice encourages a simple walk a day to all Plainville chiropractic
Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective
A meta-analysis, the
highest form of research reporting, shares that NSAIDSeven
though they are 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 states that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Layden Chiropractic’s
non-drug Plainville chiropractic care is pain-relieving! Contact Layden Chiropractic today
