Moses Chiropractics Healthy News for March 2017

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.

150 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 Over Placebo

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.
