Vancouver Chiropractic Relief for Back Pain After Surgery

Back surgery. It’s an option some choose for back pain relief. About 50% of them report relief at one year later. What’s next? Another back surgery? More pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Vancouver Disc Centers would add chiropractic care as a viable approach before back surgery, and Vancouver Disc Centers  welcomes back pain patients to the Vancouver back pain specialty practice even if they have already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical approach to alleviate Vancouver 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 fulfills Vancouver back pain patients’ desire for relief. Vancouver Disc Centers presents it to their Vancouver 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 surely not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to consider let alone experience. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these particular back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is referred for physical therapy, advised to try 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. Vancouver Disc Centers stands ready with its Vancouver chiropractic care to aid 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, pursue care from the back pain specialist who is clinically proficient, 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 dealing with their back pain.

Decision Making 

How does one make that decision though? When a surgeon proposes surgery or a pain medicine doctor offers medication or a physical therapist offers exercise or a chiropractor offers spinal manipulation in one form or another, how does the relief-seeking Vancouver back pain patient decide? Have all of these providers share with patients with unbiased 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. Vancouver Disc Centers certainly does. Our Vancouver back pain sufferers are thankful when they get relief after care.

So Vancouver Disc Centers shares these recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Vancouver 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 showed more than 50% relief of pain at the end of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% continued with their 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 noted in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient reacts positively to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Vancouver Disc Centers finds that a combination approach for pain relief is often most beneficial for our Vancouver chiropractic patients.

Vancouver Disc Centers makes a chiropractic treatment plan tailored for each Vancouver chiropractic patient that involves the following: combination of approaches as appropriate, interaction with fellow healthcare colleagues as necessary, presentation of the newest in clinical outcomes of care options existing, and standing by you, our Vancouver post-surgical continued back pain patient, through it all.
