PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research reports 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 don’t undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being told to do it. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also called “failed back surgical syndrome”), Vancouver chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without another surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeking care from a chiropractor using Cox Technic documents that 81% of these patients achieved more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be ample relief to return 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 experiencing back pain post-back surgery, Vancouver Spine Care Centre can help with gentle, research-documented, Vancouver 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 comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise doesn’t deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances 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 Vancouver Spine Care Centre about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
