Before undergoing back surgery, Plainville back pain
sufferers can benefit
from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps sharing the usefulness
of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. Layden Chiropractic is
the chiropractic care office in Plainville for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is often recommended
as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that does
not work, adding non-drug
therapy for acute low back pain – spinal manipulation – and for chronic or subacute
back pain – spinal manipulation, intensive interdisciplinary rehab, exercise,
acupuncture, massage, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy - is suggested
by medical physician groups like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Layden Chiropractic uses
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment known
as Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well help
Plainville back pain sufferers evade back
surgery and manage their back pain more independently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers want to help themselves
as much as possible. Layden Chiropractic realizes this. Exercise is shown advantageous for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper form
of exercise is important, so we’ll talk
about what’s suitable for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based
exercise program found that the pain patients better functioned
and managed their pain condition more independently
and efficiently. They did better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising,
did more to manage their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, motivated them to experience
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits came
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers established a trial of exercise for
back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They explained
the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They established exercise programs for each patient to do. They
discovered that back pain patients who experienced
this pre-surgery program of description and exercise benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ mental state got
better as they exercised. They had time to contemplate their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t
report symptom improvement reacted well to this
program as they thought themselves more confident in being able to
do some self-management of their pain. (4)
These are all positive outcomes Plainville back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Layden Chiropractic.
Control not cure is a realistic objective when coping
with back pain.
