PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research states that those who go through rehab4 after back disc surgery find themselves with more favorable treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients do not undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being directed to do it. For those who face continued pain after back surgery (also called “failed back surgical syndrome”), Vancouver chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without another surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients achieved more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be ample relief to allow these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend did not do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are undergoing back pain post-back surgery, Vancouver Disc Centers can help with gentle, research-documented, Vancouver chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is beneficial for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are made up of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise doesn’t deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus performing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your odds of low back pain. (4) Ask Vancouver Disc Centers about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
