PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research documents that those who go through rehab4 after back disc surgery find themselves with more favorable treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients do not undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being directed to do so. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also called “failed back surgical syndrome”), Baton Rouge chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without further surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients gained more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be adequate relief to allow these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend did not do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are undergoing back pain post-back surgery, Spine & Sports Rehab Center can help with gentle, research-documented, Baton Rouge chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is helpful for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are made up of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise does not reduce glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your chances of low back pain. (4) Talk with Spine & Sports Rehab Center about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
