Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology’s Healthy News for March 2017

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”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule in this study’s findings. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology offers Plymouth chiropractic care that does not harm.

Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly

Patients with chronic neck pain have a shorter stride and less thoracic spinal rotation when walking. This will likely have long term effects on the spine. (2) What to do? Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain become chronic. Get Plymouth chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.

Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!

National guidelines suggest that we all get 150 minutes of exercise a week. Only 52% of us Plymouth non-back pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It is shown that 150 minutes keeps post-surgical back pain patients moving and away from another surgery. They also have less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so effective. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology promotes a walk a day to all Plymouth chiropractic patients.

Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective Over Placebo

NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) NSAIDs are reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference is not clinically relevant between NSAIDs and placebo. It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology’s non-drug Plymouth chiropractic care is pain-relieving! Contact Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology today for an appointment.
