Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. Helps Relieve Post-Surgical Back Pain

Back surgery. It’s an option some choose to get relief of their back pain. About 50% of them report relief at one year later. What’s next? More back surgery? Additional pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile option before back surgery, and Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.  welcomes back pain patients to the Auburn back pain specialty practice even if they have already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical approach to relieve Auburn spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that has much evidence-based research as its foundation with documented clinical outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. It fulfills Auburn back pain patients’ desire for relief. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. offers it to their Auburn 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 certainly not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to consider let alone deal with. It happens 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, prescribed medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient welcomes options beyond those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. stands ready with its Auburn chiropractic care to help at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic shows itself to be equally effective as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report further states 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, pursue care from the back pain specialist who is clinically adept, 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 dealing with their back pain.

Decision Making 

How to decide though? Surgeons, pain control specialists, physical therapists and chiropractors all offer their various approaches that seem workable for relief, the pain suffering patient may have trouble deciding. What will help? Have all of these providers present patients with unbiased 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. Being human, the healthcare provider seeing a patient in pain wants to help that back pain patient get rid of the pain fast, too. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. certainly does. Our Auburn back pain sufferers are appreciative when they get relief after care.

So Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Auburn 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 greater than 50% relief of pain at the end of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% continued with their 50% relief of pain at 24 months follow up. The percent of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers tell that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are seen in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient reacts well to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering pain dropping from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. observes that a combination approach for pain relief is often best for our Auburn chiropractic patients.

Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. makes a chiropractic treatment plan tailored for each Auburn chiropractic patient that involves the following: recommendation of a variety of approaches as appropriate, interaction with fellow healthcare colleagues as necessary, presentation of the latest in clinical outcomes of care options existing, and standing by you, our Auburn post-surgical continued back pain patient, all the way.
