Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery Tonawanda Chiropractic Care and Exercise

Before undergoing back surgery, Tonawanda back pain sufferers can benefit from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research continues to share the benefit of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is the chiropractic care office in Tonawanda for both!


Self-care is often proposed as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t 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 suggested by medical physician organizations like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation specializes in a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment called Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well help Tonawanda back pain sufferers evade back surgery and manage their back pain more self-sufficiently.


Back pain sufferers want to help themselves as much as possible. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation realizes this. Exercise is documented to be useful for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right form of exercise is important, so we will talk about what is suitable for you! Maybe Pilates would be your exercise of choice. 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 autonomously and efficiently. They performed better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising, did more to manage their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, motivated them to experience a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits resulted without back surgery.


Researchers established a trial of exercise for back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They explained the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They set up 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’ mood improved as they exercised. They had time to mull over their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not 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 positive outcomes Tonawanda back pain patients find in their chiropractic care at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation. Control not cure is a realistic objective when coping with back pain.
