Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care and Exercise

Before undergoing back surgery, Baton Rouge back pain sufferers can benefit from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps documenting the usefulness of non-surgical care for back pain relief. InBaton Rouge Spine & Sports Rehab Center is the chiropractic care clinic for both!


Self-care is frequently proposed as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t work, including 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 recommended by medical physician organizations like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center specializes in a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment known as Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well help Baton Rouge back pain sufferers avoid back surgery and control their back pain more self-sufficiently.


Back pain sufferers want to help themselves as much as possible. Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows this. Exercise is documented to be valuable 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 proper for you! Maybe Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based exercise program revealed that the pain patients better functioned and coped with their pain condition more autonomously and effectively. They performed better at work, took pleasure in hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising, did more to make do with their own pain conditions without outside help. These, in turn, helped them enjoy a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits arose without back surgery.


Researchers set up a trial of exercise for back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They described the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They established exercise programs for each patient to do. They found that back pain patients who underwent this pre-surgery program of explanation and exercise benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers felt better exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain sufferers’ frame of mind improved as they exercised. They had time to mull over their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not report symptom improvement responded 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 Baton Rouge back pain patients find in their chiropractic care at Spine & Sports Rehab Center. Control not cure is a realistic goal when coping with back pain.
