Before undergoing back surgery, Vancouver back pain
sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps documenting the value
of non-surgical care for back pain relief. InVancouver Vancouver Disc Centers
is the chiropractic care clinic for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently proposed
as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t produce the desired results, 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 recommended
by medical physician organizations like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers specializes in
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well help
Vancouver back pain sufferers avoid back
surgery and control their back pain more independently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves
as much as possible. Vancouver Disc Centers knows this. Exercise is shown positive for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper type
of exercise is vital, so we will talk
about what’s 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 discovered that the pain patients better functioned
and coped with their pain condition more independently
and efficiently. They did better at work, took
pleasure in hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising,
did more to make do with their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, helped them discover
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits resulted
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers set up a trial of exercise for
back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They described
the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They established 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 noticed improvement
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 didn’t
report 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 beneficial outcomes Vancouver back pain
patients discover in their chiropractic care at Vancouver Disc Centers.
Control not cure is a realistic objective when dealing
with back pain.
