Before undergoing back surgery, Williamson back pain
sufferers can benefit
from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps sharing the benefit
of non-surgical care for back pain relief. InWilliamson Apple Country Chiropractic
is the chiropractic care clinic for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is often suggested
as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t produce the desired results, 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 suggested
by medical physician organizations like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic delivers
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well assist
Williamson back pain sufferers evade 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. Apple Country Chiropractic realizes this. Exercise is shown useful for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper type
of exercise is important, so we’ll discuss what’s proper for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based
exercise program found that the pain patients better functioned
and coped with their pain condition more independently
and efficiently. They did 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, motivated them to discover
a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits resulted
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers set up a trial of exercise for
back pain patients headed to back surgery. They described
the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They established exercise programs for each patient to perform. They
discovered that back pain patients who experienced
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’ mood got
better as they exercised. They had time to reflect on their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not
describe symptom improvement reacted 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 Williamson back pain
patients discover in their chiropractic care at Apple Country Chiropractic.
Control not cure is a realistic goal when coping
with back pain.
