PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research reports that those who take advantage of rehabilitation after back disc surgery find themselves with better treatment outcomes in the year after the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being directed to do it. For those who experience continued pain after back surgery (also referred to as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Largo chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without another surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeking care from a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds that 81% of these patients acquired more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be sufficient relief to get 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 suffering back pain post-back surgery, Hollstrom & Associates Inc can help with gentle, research-documented, Largo chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is beneficial for the nutrition 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 does not lessen glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your odds of low back pain. (4) Ask Hollstrom & Associates Inc about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Largo chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
