Before undergoing back surgery, West Palm Beach back pain
sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps sharing the benefit
of non-surgical care for back pain relief. Moses Chiropractic is
the chiropractic care office in West Palm Beach for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is often recommended
as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t work, 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) Moses Chiropractic uses
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well assist
West Palm Beach back pain sufferers refrain from back
surgery and manage their back pain more independently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers want to help themselves
as much as possible. Moses Chiropractic knows this. Exercise is documented
to be beneficial for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right form
of exercise is vital, so we’ll talk
about what’s right for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based
exercise program found that the pain patients better functioned
and coped with their pain condition more independently
and efficiently. They did better at work, took
pleasure in hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising,
did more to manage their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, motivated them to 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 benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ disposition got
better as they exercised. They had time to mull
over their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not
report symptom improvement reacted well to this
program as they thought themselves more confident managing their pain themselves. (4)
These are all positive outcomes West Palm Beach back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Moses Chiropractic.
Control not cure is a reasonable objective when dealing
with back pain.
