Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery San Jose Chiropractic Care and Exercise

Before undergoing back surgery, San Jose back pain sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps sharing the benefit of non-surgical care for back pain relief. InSan Jose Chiropractic Solutions is the chiropractic care clinic for both!


Self-care is frequently proposed as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t work, adding non-drug therapy for acute low back pain – spinal manipulation – and for chronic or subacute back pain – spinal manipulation, intensive interdisciplinary rehab, exercise, acupuncture, massage, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy - is suggested by medical physician groups like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Chiropractic Solutions specializes in a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment called Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well help San Jose back pain sufferers evade back surgery and manage their back pain more independently.


Back pain sufferers want to help themselves as much as possible. Chiropractic Solutions realizes this. Exercise is shown positive for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right form of exercise is vital, so we’ll talk about what’s suitable for you! Maybe Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based exercise program revealed that the pain patients better functioned and coped with their pain condition more autonomously and efficiently. They did better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising, did more to manage their own pain conditions without outside help. These, in turn, helped them enjoy a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits resulted without back surgery.


Researchers established a trial of exercise for back pain patients headed to back surgery. They described the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They established exercise programs for each patient to perform. They found that back pain patients who underwent this pre-surgery program of description and exercise benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain sufferers’ mental state improved as they exercised. They had time to contemplate their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t describe symptom improvement responded well to this program as they thought themselves more confident in being able to do some self-management of their pain. (4) These are all beneficial outcomes San Jose back pain patients discover in their chiropractic care at Chiropractic Solutions. Control not cure is a reasonable objective when dealing with back pain.
