Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology’s September 2017 Healthy Newsletter


Research states that those who undergo rehabilitation after back disc surgery experience better treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They go back to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being told to do it. For those who face continued pain after back surgery (also called “failed back surgical syndrome”), Plymouth chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without another surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic finds that 81% of these patients gained greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be sufficient relief to allow these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend did not do any rehabilitation after back surgery and/or are suffering back pain post-back surgery, Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology can help with gentle, research-documented, Plymouth chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is good for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are made up of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise does not reduce glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your odds of low back pain. (4) Talk with Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Plymouth chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
