CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently recommended
as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that does
not work, adding 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) Vancouver Spine Care Centre uses
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well assist
Vancouver back pain sufferers refrain from back
surgery and control their back pain more self-sufficiently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves
as much as possible. Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows this. Exercise is shown advantageous for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right type
of exercise is important, so we will discuss what is suitable for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based
exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned
and coped with their pain condition more independently
and effectively. They performed better at work, took
pleasure in hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising,
did more to manage their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, helped them discover
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits resulted
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers established a trial of exercise for
back pain patients headed to back surgery. They explained
the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. 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’ disposition got
better as they exercised. They had time to reflect on their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t
describe symptom improvement responded well to this
program as they felt more confident in being able to
do some self-management of their pain. (4)
These are all beneficial outcomes Vancouver back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Vancouver Spine Care Centre.
Control not cure is a realistic objective when coping
with back pain.
