Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery Plainville Chiropractic Care and Exercise

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!


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.


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.


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.
