Spine & Sports Rehab Center Helps Relieve Post-Surgical Back Pain

Back surgery. It’s an option some choose to get relief of their back pain. About 50% of them report relief at one year later. What’s next? Another back surgery? More pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Spine & Sports Rehab Center would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile approach before back surgery, and Spine & Sports Rehab Center  welcomes back pain patients to the Baton Rouge back pain specialty practice even if they have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical method to relieve Baton Rouge spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that has much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical outcomes of relieving and controlling back pain. Cox Technic fulfills Baton Rouge back pain patients’ desire for relief. Spine & Sports Rehab Center offers it to their Baton Rouge back pain patients if they find themselves with post-surgical continued pain or the condition diagnosis of “failed back surgery syndrome” (FBSS).

Post Surgical Continued Pain Diagnosis 

A FBSS diagnosis is surely not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to ponder let alone deal with. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these particular back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is transferred to physical therapy, recommended medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient welcomes options beyond those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Spine & Sports Rehab Center stands ready with its Baton Rouge chiropractic care to assist at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic is shown to be equally effective as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report further states that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be based on patient preference and values.” (1) That is what evidence-based medicine is all about: seek out the best evidence from the research, seek care from the back pain specialist who is clinically adept, and meet patient expectations and preferences. That’s what chiropractic research continues to do: produce the research and publish the outcomes for the public to base its decision on what is best for managing their back pain.

Decision Making 

How does one make that decision though? When a surgeon proposes surgery or a pain medicine doctor offers medication or a physical therapist offers exercise or a chiropractor offers spinal manipulation in one form or another, how does the relief-seeking Baton Rouge back pain patient decide? Have all of these providers share with patients with impartial information about the potential benefits and risks of the options. (2) Everyone knows though that when the pain is intense, the first offer of relief looks really good. Being human, the healthcare provider seeing a patient in pain wants to help that back pain patient get rid of the pain fast, too. Spine & Sports Rehab Center certainly does. Our Baton Rouge back pain sufferers are grateful when they get relief after care.

So Spine & Sports Rehab Center shares these recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Baton Rouge back pain patients: spinal manipulation relief for post-surgical continued pain patients and for post-implanted and currently wearing spinal stimulator patients. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients, 80% of patients showed more than 50% relief of pain at the end of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% reported 50% relief of pain at 24 months follow up. The percent of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers tell that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are observed in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient reacts well to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, reporting pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Spine & Sports Rehab Center notices that a combination approach for pain relief is often best for our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients.
