Before undergoing back surgery, Auburn back pain
sufferers can benefit
from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps sharing the benefit
of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is
the chiropractic care office in Auburn for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is often recommended
as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t 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 organizations like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. delivers
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment known
as Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well assist
Auburn back pain sufferers avoid back
surgery and manage their back pain more self-sufficiently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves
as much as possible. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. realizes this. Exercise is documented
to be valuable for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right type
of exercise is key, so we’ll discuss what’s proper for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based
exercise program revealed that the pain patients better functioned
and coped with their pain condition more independently
and efficiently. They performed better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising,
did more to manage their own pain conditions without
outside help. These, in turn, motivated them to experience
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits arose
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers established a trial of exercise for
back pain patients headed to back surgery. They described
the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They established exercise programs for each patient to do. They
discovered that back pain patients who underwent
this pre-surgery program of explanation and exercise gained
benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers felt better
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ frame of mind got
better as they exercised. They had time to contemplate their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t
describe symptom improvement responded well to this
program as they felt more confident in being able to
do some self-management of their pain. (4)
These are all positive outcomes Auburn back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C..
Control not cure is a reasonable objective when dealing
with back pain.
