Back surgery. It
is an option some choose for back pain relief. About 50% of them report relief at one year
later. What’s next? More back surgery? More
pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic?
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile approach
before back surgery, and Aaron Chiropractic Clinic welcomes back pain patients to the
Fort Wayne back pain specialty practice even if they have
already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic
is a non-surgical approach to alleviate
Fort Wayne 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. Cox
Technic fulfills Fort Wayne back pain patients’ desire for
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic offers it to their Fort Wayne 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 certainly not one a
post-surgical back pain patient wants to ponder let alone experience. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery isn’t the desired answer for these particular 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 welcomes options beyond those medical
approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else
before back surgery. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic stands ready with its Fort Wayne
to help 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 further states
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 is 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? When a surgeon proposes surgery or a pain medicine doctor
offers medication or a physical therapist offers exercise or a chiropractor
offers spinal manipulation in one form or another, how does the relief-seeking Fort Wayne
back pain patient decide? Have all of these providers share
with patients with impartial 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 is really appealing.
Any human physician wants to help a person in pain get rid of that. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic certainly does.
Our Fort Wayne back pain sufferers are thankful
when they get relief after care.

So Aaron Chiropractic Clinic wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome
articles with Fort Wayne 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 showed 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% continued with their 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 noted in their findings. (4) Finally,
a post-surgical patient reacts well 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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic notices that a
combination approach for pain relief is often best for our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients.
