Minster Chiropractic Care of Continued Back Pain after Back Surgery

Back surgery. It’s an option some choose for back pain relief. At one year follow up, generally around 50% of surgical patients report continued relief. What then? Another back surgery? Additional pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Minster Chiropractic Center would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile approach before back surgery, and Minster Chiropractic Center  welcomes back pain patients to the Minster back pain specialty practice even if they’ve already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical approach to relieve Minster spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that has much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical outcomes of relieving and controlling back pain. It satisfies Minster back pain patients seeking relief. Minster Chiropractic Center presents it to their Minster back pain patients if they find themselves with post-surgical continued pain or the condition diagnosis of “failed back surgery syndrome” (FBSS).

Post Surgical Continued Pain Diagnosis 

A FBSS diagnosis is surely not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to consider let alone experience. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery is not the desired answer for these types of back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is referred for physical therapy, advised to try medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient wants to try anything but those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Minster Chiropractic Center stands ready with its Minster chiropractic care to aid at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic is shown to be equally beneficial as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report goes on to say that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be based on patient preference and values.” (1) That is what evidence-based medicine is all about: seek out the best evidence from the research, seek care from the back pain specialist who is clinically proficient, and meet patient expectations and preferences. That’s what chiropractic research continues to do: produce the research and publish the outcomes for the public to decide what is best for managing their back pain.

Decision Making 

How does one make that decision though? Surgeons, pain control specialists, physical therapists and chiropractors all offer their various approaches that seem plausible for relief, the pain suffering patient may have trouble deciding. What will help? Have all of these providers provide patients with impartial information about the potential benefits and risks of the options. (2) Everyone knows though that when the pain is intense, the first offer of relief looks really good. Any human physician wants to help a person in pain get rid of that. Minster Chiropractic Center certainly does. Our Minster back pain sufferers are grateful when they get relief after care.

So Minster Chiropractic Center shares these recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Minster back pain patients: spinal manipulation relief for post-surgical continued pain patients and for post-implanted and currently wearing spinal stimulator patients. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients, 80% of patients showed more than 50% relief of pain at the end of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% reported 50% relief of pain at 24 months follow up. The amount of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers report that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are observed in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient reacts well to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, reporting pain dropping from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Minster Chiropractic Center finds that a combination approach for pain relief is usually best for our Minster chiropractic patients.

Every Minster chiropractic patient is matched with his or her very own, personalized treatment plan that involves the following: combination of approaches as appropriate, interaction with fellow healthcare colleagues as necessary, presentation of the latest in clinical outcomes of care options available, and standing by you, our Minster post-surgical continued back pain patient, through it all.
