Before undergoing back surgery, Paramus back pain
sufferers can benefit
from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps documenting the value
of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. InParamus Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center
is the chiropractic care clinic for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is often recommended
as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t work, 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center delivers
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment known
as Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well assist
Paramus back pain sufferers avoid back
surgery and control their back pain more independently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers want to help themselves
as much as possible. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center realizes this. Exercise is shown positive for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right type
of exercise is key, so we will talk
about what’s right for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based
exercise program found 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 independently. These, in turn, motivated them to experience
a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits resulted
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers established a trial of exercise for
back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They explained
the back pain condition to the patients carefully. 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 benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ mental state improved as they exercised. They had time to mull
over their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not
describe symptom improvement reacted well to this
program as they felt more confident in being able to
do some self-management of their pain. (4)
These are all beneficial outcomes Paramus back pain
patients discover in their chiropractic care at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center.
Control not cure is a realistic objective when dealing
with back pain.
