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, patients with these stimulators reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a physician is “Do no harm”. This study shows how spinal manipulation and mobilization do just that. 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. Only 52% of us Fort Wayne non-back pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It’s shown that 150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back pain patients going. These post-surgical patients also feel less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so effective. Our Fort Wayne chiropractic practice encourages a simple walk a day to all Fort Wayne chiropractic patients.

Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar

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.
