Plymouth Chiropractic Care of Continued Back Pain after Back Surgery

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 still 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 chiropractic care 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.

Decision Making 

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. Being 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.

Every Plymouth chiropractic patient is matched with his or her very own, personalized treatment plan 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.
