Paramus Chiropractic Care of Continued Back Pain after Back Surgery

Back surgery. It is an option some choose to get relief of their back pain. About 50% of them report relief at one year later. What then? Another back surgery? Additional pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile approach before back surgery, and Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center  welcomes back pain patients to the Paramus back pain specialty practice even if they have already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical method to alleviate Paramus spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that is founded on evidence-based research with documented clinical outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. It fulfills Paramus back pain patients’ desire for relief. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center presents it to their Paramus 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 ponder let alone experience. It happens though. Often another surgery isn’t 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 wants to try anything but those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center stands ready with its Paramus 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’s 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 plausible for relief, the pain suffering patient may have trouble deciding. What might 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. Any human physician wants to help a person in pain get rid of that. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center certainly does. Our Paramus back pain sufferers are thankful when they get relief after care.

So Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Paramus 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 demonstrated greater than 50% relief of pain at the conclusion 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 percent of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers state 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 positively to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center observes that a combination approach for pain relief is often most beneficial for our Paramus chiropractic patients.

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