No Adverse Effects Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators Treated with Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation
In a new report, researchers report on
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 post
surgically. 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. Moses Chiropractic offers West Palm Beach
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. Walking like this will affect the
spine well into the future. (2) What to do? Moses Chiropractic’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain become chronic. Seek West Palm Beach
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
minutes of Exercise a Week – For All of Us Especially After Back Surgery
National guidelines suggest that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. Only 52% of us West Palm Beach non-back
pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It is shown that
150 minutes keeps post-surgical back pain patients moving and away from
another surgery. These post-surgical patients also have
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so effective. Our
West Palm Beach chiropractic practice promotes a walk a day to all West Palm Beach chiropractic patients.
Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective
A meta-analysis, the
highest form of research reporting, shares that NSAIDSeven
though they are one of the most frequently prescribed
drugs for sciatic leg pain offer similar pain relief and overall improvement to
placebo with a higher risk of adverse side-effects. (4) Another
study shares that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the
difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically important.
It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Moses Chiropractic’s
non-drug West Palm Beach chiropractic care is pain-relieving! Contact Moses Chiropractic today
