Before undergoing back surgery, Fort Wayne back pain
sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps documenting the benefit
of non-surgical care for back pain relief. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is
the chiropractic care office in Fort Wayne for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently proposed
as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t produce the desired results, 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 recommended
by medical physician organizations like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic specializes in
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment called Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well help
Fort Wayne back pain sufferers refrain from back
surgery and manage their back pain more self-sufficiently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers want to help themselves
as much as possible. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows this. Exercise is shown beneficial for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper type
of exercise is key, so we will talk
about what is suitable for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based
exercise program revealed that the pain patients better functioned
and managed their pain condition more independently
and efficiently. They performed better at work, took
pleasure in hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising,
did more to make do with their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, motivated them to enjoy
a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits arose
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers set up a trial of exercise for
back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They described
the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They set
up 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 felt better
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ mood improved as they exercised. They had time to contemplate their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t
report symptom improvement responded well to this
program as they felt more confident in being able to
do some self-management of their pain. (4)
These are all positive outcomes Fort Wayne back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic.
Control not cure is a realistic objective when dealing
with back pain.
