Before undergoing back surgery, Toronto back pain
sufferers can benefit
from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps documenting the benefit
of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is
the chiropractic care office in Toronto for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is often recommended
as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that does
not 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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre delivers
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well assist
Toronto 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. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre realizes this. Exercise is shown useful for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right type
of exercise is key, so we’ll discuss what’s proper for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based
exercise program revealed that the pain patients better functioned
and coped with their pain condition more independently
and efficiently. They performed better at work, took
pleasure in hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising,
did more to manage their own pain conditions without
outside help. These, in turn, helped them experience
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits resulted
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers established a trial of exercise for
back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They described
the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They established exercise programs for each patient to do. They
found that back pain patients who experienced
this pre-surgery program of explanation and exercise gained
benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ disposition improved as they exercised. They had time to reflect on their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not
describe symptom improvement responded well to this
program as they thought themselves more confident in being able to
do some self-management of their pain. (4)
These are all positive outcomes Toronto back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre.
Control not cure is a reasonable goal when dealing
with back pain.
