Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, authors report on
treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal
stimulators for pain management after back surgery. Patients with these
devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain post
surgically. After being treated with chiropractic spinal
manipulation or mobilization, the patients in
the study reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a
physician is “Do no harm”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule
in this study’s findings. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic offers Fort Wayne
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!
Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly
Chronic neck pain patients seem to walk more stiffly.
Why? Their stride is shorter and their mid-spine does not rotate
as much. Walking like this will affect the
spine well into the future. (2) What to do? Aaron Chiropractic Clinic’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain become chronic. Get Fort Wayne
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!
National guidelines recommend that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise a week. How many of us
Fort Wayne folks do? Just 52%! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It’s shown that
150 minutes keeps post-surgical back pain patients moving and away from
another surgery. These post-surgical patients also feel
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so effective. Our

Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective
A meta-analysis, the
highest form of research reporting, reports that NSAIDSeven
though they are one of the most frequently prescribed
drugs for sciatic leg pain offer similar pain relief and overall improvement to
placebo with a higher risk of adverse side-effects. (4) Another
study reports that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the
difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically important.
It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic’s
non-drug Fort Wayne chiropractic care is pain-relieving! Contact Aaron Chiropractic Clinic today
