Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre’s Healthy News for March 2017

Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects

In a new report, researchers share treatment outcomes of patients with implanted spinal stimulators for post-surgical continued back pain management. Patients with these devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain after back surgery. After being treated with chiropractic spinal manipulation or mobilization, patients with these stimulators reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a physician is “Do no harm”. This study shows how spinal manipulation and mobilization do just that. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre offers Toronto chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!

Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly

Chronic neck pain patients seem to walk more stiffly. Why? Their stride is shorter and their mid-spine does not rotate as much. This will likely have long term effects on the spine. (2) What to do? Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Get Toronto chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk more easily.

150 minutes of Exercise a Week – For All of Us Especially After Back Surgery

National guidelines recommend that we all get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. Only 52% of us Toronto non-back pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It is shown that 150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back pain patients going. They also have less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so important. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre encourages a simple walk a day to all Toronto chiropractic patients.

Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar

NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) Another study shares that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically significant. It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is here to help with Toronto chiropractic non-drug pain-relieving care!
