Before undergoing back surgery, Minster back pain
sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research continues
to share the benefit
of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. InMinster Minster Chiropractic Center
is the chiropractic care clinic for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is often suggested
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 suggested
by medical physician groups like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Minster Chiropractic Center specializes in
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well assist
Minster 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. Minster Chiropractic Center knows this. Exercise is shown useful for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right type
of exercise is vital, so we will talk
about what’s right for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based
exercise program found that the pain patients better functioned
and coped with their pain condition more autonomously
and efficiently. They did better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising,
did more to make do with their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, helped them discover
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits arose
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers set up 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
discovered 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’ frame of mind improved as they exercised. They had time to contemplate their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not
report 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 Minster back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Minster Chiropractic Center.
Control not cure is a reasonable goal when coping
with back pain.
