Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, researchers share
treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal
stimulators for pain management after back surgery. Patients with these
devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain after back surgery. 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. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. offers Auburn
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!
Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly
Patients with chronic neck pain have a shorter stride and less
thoracic spinal rotation when walking. Walking like this will affect the
spine well into the future. (2) What to do? Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain become chronic. Get Auburn
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!
National guidelines recommend that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. How many of us
Auburn folks do? Just 52%! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It’s shown that
150 minutes keeps post-surgical back pain patients moving and away from
another surgery. They also have
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so important. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages a simple walk a day to all Auburn chiropractic
Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective
NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall
improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new
meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one
of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) NSAIDs are
reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference
is not clinically significant between NSAIDs and placebo.
It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
