Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, researchers report on
treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal
stimulators for pain management after back surgery. Patients with these
devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain after back surgery. After being treated with chiropractic spinal
manipulation or mobilization, patients with these stimulators reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a
physician is “Do no harm”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule
in this study’s findings. Most Chiropractic Clinic offers Murfreesboro
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!
Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly
Patients with chronic neck pain have a shorter stride and less
thoracic spinal rotation when walking. This will likely have long term effects on the
spine. (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic’s
best advice: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Seek Murfreesboro
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!
National guidelines recommend that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. Only 52% of us Murfreesboro non-back
pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It is shown that
150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back
pain patients going. These post-surgical patients also experience
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so important. Most Chiropractic Clinic encourages a simple walk a day to all Murfreesboro chiropractic
Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar
A meta-analysis, the
highest form of research reporting, shares that NSAIDSdespite their being. one of the most frequently prescribed
drugs for sciatic leg pain offer similar pain relief and overall improvement to
placebo with a higher risk of adverse side-effects. (4) Another
study shares that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the
difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically significant.
It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Most Chiropractic Clinic
