PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research reports that those who take advantage of rehab4 after back disc surgery find themselves with better treatment outcomes in the year after the back surgery. They go back to work. (1) Some back surgery patients do not undergo rehabilitation by their own decision or by not being told to do so. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also called “failed back surgical syndrome”), Toronto chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without further surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients acquired 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 didn’t do any rehabilitation after back surgery and/or are experiencing back pain post-back surgery, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre can help with gentle, research-documented, Toronto chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is good 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 explain that physical exercise does not deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your chances of low back pain. (4) Ask Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Toronto chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
