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. Chiropractic Solutions is
the chiropractic care office in San Jose for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
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 promoted
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.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
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.
EXERCISE BEFORE 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 reacted 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.
