Back surgery. It
is an option some choose for back pain relief. At one year follow up, generally around 50% of surgical
patients report continued relief. What’s next? More back surgery? More
pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic?
McMurray Chiropractic Solutions would add chiropractic care as a viable option
before back surgery, and McMurray Chiropractic Solutions welcomes back pain patients to the
San Jose back pain specialty practice even if they have
already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic
is a non-surgical method to alleviate
San Jose spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment
protocol that is based on evidence-based research with documented clinical
outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. Cox
Technic fulfills San Jose back pain patients’ desire for
McMurray Chiropractic Solutions presents it to their San Jose 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 ponder let alone experience. It happens though. Often another surgery isn’t 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. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions stands ready with its San Jose
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’s what
chiropractic research continues to do: produce the research and publish the
outcomes for the public to decide 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 might
help? Have all of these providers share
with 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 looks really good.
human, the healthcare provider seeing a patient in pain wants to help that back
pain patient get rid of the pain fast, too. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions certainly does.
Our San Jose back pain sufferers are grateful
when they get relief after care.

So McMurray Chiropractic Solutions shares these recent chiropractic-outcome
articles with San Jose 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 greater
than 50% relief of pain at the conclusion of care (3 months) in a mean of
49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% continued with their 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 noted in their findings. (4) Finally,
a post-surgical patient reacts positively to
rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering
pain dropping from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits
in 3 months. (5) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions notices that a
combination approach for pain relief is often most
beneficial for our San Jose chiropractic patients.
