Back surgery. It’s an option some choose to get relief of their
back pain. About 50% of them report relief at one year
later. What then? More back surgery? Additional
pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic?
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile option
before back surgery, and Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation welcomes back pain patients to the
Tonawanda back pain specialty practice even if they have
already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic
is a non-surgical method to alleviate
Tonawanda spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment
protocol that offers
much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical
outcomes of relieving and controlling back pain. Cox
Technic satisfies Tonawanda back pain patients seeking relief.
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation offers it to their Tonawanda back pain patients
if they find themselves with post-surgical continued pain or the condition diagnosis of “failed
back surgery syndrome” (FBSS).
Post Surgical Continued Pain Diagnosis
A FBSS diagnosis is certainly not one a
post-surgical back pain patient wants to ponder let alone deal
with. It happens though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these types of back pain sufferers.
Often such a patient is transferred to physical therapy, recommended
medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a
patient welcomes options beyond those medical
approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else
before back surgery. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation stands ready with its Tonawanda
to assist at any stage of the process of back
pain and its relief.
Chiropractic Care for FBSS
Low back pain care with chiropractic is shown
to be equally beneficial as physical therapy with no serious
adverse side-effects. This review report further states
that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be
based on patient preference and values.” (1) That is what
evidence-based medicine is all about: seek out the best evidence from the research,
seek care from the back pain specialist who is clinically adept,
and meet patient expectations and preferences. That’s what
chiropractic research continues to do: produce the research and publish the
outcomes for the public to decide what is best for managing their back pain.
How does one make that decision though? Surgeons,
pain control specialists, physical therapists and chiropractors all offer their
various approaches that seem plausible for relief,
the pain suffering patient may have trouble deciding. What will
help? Have all of these providers share
with patients with impartial information about the potential
benefits and risks of the options. (2) Everyone knows though that when the pain
is intense, the first offer of relief is really appealing.
Any human physician wants to help a person in pain get rid of that. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation certainly does.
Our Tonawanda back pain sufferers are appreciative
when they get relief after care.

So Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome
articles with Tonawanda back pain patients: spinal manipulation relief
for post-surgical continued pain patients and for post-implanted and currently
wearing spinal stimulator patients. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain
patients, 80% of patients demonstrated greater
than 50% relief of pain at the end of care (3 months) in a mean of
49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% reported 50% relief
of pain at 24 months follow up. The percent of relief was 71.6% at
3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then,
researchers tell that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation
or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are seen in their findings. (4) Finally,
a post-surgical patient reacts well to
rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, reporting
pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits
in 3 months. (5) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation observes that a
combination approach for pain relief is often most
beneficial for our Tonawanda chiropractic patients.
