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
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
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.
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.
