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?
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile option
before back surgery, and Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology welcomes back pain patients to the
Plymouth back pain specialty practice even if they’ve
already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic
is a non-surgical approach to alleviate
Plymouth spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment
protocol that is founded on evidence-based research with documented clinical
outcomes of relieving and controlling back pain. Cox
Technic satisfies Plymouth back pain patients seeking relief.
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology presents it to their Plymouth 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 consider let alone experience. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery is
not the desired answer for these types of back pain sufferers.
Often such a patient is transferred to physical therapy, advised to try
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. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology stands ready with its Plymouth
to assist 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 effective as physical therapy with no serious
adverse side-effects. This review report goes on to say
that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be
based on patient preference and values.” (1) That is what
evidence-based medicine is all about: seek out the best evidence from the research,
seek care from the back pain specialist who is clinically proficient,
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 base its decision on what is best for managing their back pain.
How to decide though? Surgeons,
pain control specialists, physical therapists and chiropractors all offer their
various approaches that seem reasonable for relief,
the pain suffering patient may have trouble deciding. What will
help? Have all of these providers provide patients with unbiased 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.
human, the healthcare provider seeing a patient in pain wants to help that back
pain patient get rid of the pain fast, too. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology certainly does.
Our Plymouth back pain sufferers are grateful
when they get relief after care.

So Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome
articles with Plymouth 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 more
than 50% relief of pain at the conclusion of care (3 months) in a mean of
49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% reported 50% relief
of pain at 24 months follow up. The amount of relief was 71.6% at
3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then,
researchers tell that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation
or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are seen in their findings. (4) Finally,
a post-surgical patient responds 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) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology observes that a
combination approach for pain relief is often best for our Plymouth chiropractic patients.
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology creates a chiropractic
treatment plan custom-made for each Plymouth chiropractic
patient that involves the following: recommendation of a variety of approaches as
appropriate, cooperation with fellow healthcare colleagues as
needed, presentation of the newest
in clinical outcomes of care options existing, and standing
by you, our Plymouth post-surgical continued back pain
patient, all the way.
