San Jose Chiropractic Care of Continued Back Pain after Back Surgery

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 relief. 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 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’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.

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 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. Being 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.
