Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, researchers share
treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal
stimulators for pain management after back surgery. 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”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule
in this study’s findings. Spine & Sports Rehab Center offers Baton Rouge
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!

chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk more easily.

patients do this. It’s shown that
150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back
pain patients going. These post-surgical patients also have
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so effective. Our
Baton Rouge chiropractic practice urges all of our
Baton Rouge chiropractic patients to do something every day like take a
Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective
NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall
improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new
meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one
of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (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 says that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Spine & Sports Rehab Center
