Vancouver Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain After Back Surgery Surgery and Integrates Extension Exercise into the Treatment Plan

Vancouver Disc Centers offers back pain relief to patients who have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. 

Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.

Most Vancouver back pain patients choose back surgery expecting Vancouver back pain relief. That expectation isn’t always met. Vancouver Disc Centers hears this from Vancouver back surgery patients and reads it in the spine research reports.  49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) due to a disc herniation is common. (1) Post-surgical back pain patients may find that they experience back pain after Vancouver back surgery. What are some options? Spinal manipulation and exercise is one such option. The American College of Physicians and American Pain Society suggest spinal manipulation for low back pain relief. (2) One patient experienced 89% improvement with 12 spinal manipulation sessions plus exercise. (3) A study of 69 post-surgical back pain patients treated with Cox® Technic - like they are at Vancouver Disc Centers – found that 81% of patients exhibited at least 50% reduction of pain at the end of 3 months of care. 78.6% of those patients had continued pain relief at 24 months follow up. (4) Vancouver chiropractic relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation of back pain relief. Vancouver Disc Centers invites you or a suffering friend or family member to visit today.

Listen to this PODCAST on The Back Doctors’ Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson in which Dr. David Atiyeh describes a patient who had undergone back surgery expecting pain relief and post-surgically discovered pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.

Vancouver Disc Centers recommends extensor strengthening exercises when back pain patients are ready for them.

Extension Exercise

Vancouver back pain sufferers frequently experience relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing backward into extension. (Read the SPINE article May 2018 on our website about why!) Extension is not all bad. A healthy spine can extend. A healthy spine needs solid back muscles to support all its motions. Strengthening those extensor muscles to prevent Vancouver back pain is essential. Research reports that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in Vancouver chiropractic patients with chronic low back pain. (5) Why? Back muscles degenerate in back pain sufferers like spinal discs degenerate. (6) Add extension exercises into your day when your Vancouver chiropractor tells you it’s appropriate. Vancouver Disc Centers can help!
