Sitka BACK SURGERY? STILL HAVE PAIN?
Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.
Most Sitka back pain patients undergo back surgery expecting Sitka back pain relief. That
expectation is not always met. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka hears this from Sitka back surgery patients and reads it
in the spine literature. 49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) because
of a disc herniation is common. (1) Post-surgical back
pain patients may discover that they experience back pain
after Sitka back surgery. What are some choices?
Spinal manipulation and exercise is one relieving option. The
American College of Physicians and American Pain Society recommend
spinal manipulation for low back pain relief. (2) One patient experienced
89% improvement with 12 spinal manipulation sessions plus exercise. (3) A study
of 69 post-surgical back pain patients cared for with Cox® Technic
- like they are at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka – found that 81% of
patients showed at least 50% reduction of pain at the end of 3
months of care. 78.6% of those patients had persistent pain
relief at 24 months follow up. (4) Sitka chiropractic
relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation
of back pain relief. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka invites you or a suffering friend or
family member to visit today.
Listen to this PODCAST
on The Back Doctors’ Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson in which Dr. David Atiyeh
describes a patient who had experienced
back surgery expecting pain relief and post-surgically discovered
pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.
TIP OF THE MONTH:
Sitka back pain sufferers frequently
find relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing
backward into extension. (Read the SPINE article May 2018 on
our website about why!) Extension is not all bad. A healthy spine can extend. A
healthy spine requires solid back muscles to support
all its movements. Strengthening those extensor muscles to stop
Sitka back pain is important. Research shows
that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are
found in Sitka chiropractic patients with chronic low back pain. (5)
Why? Back muscles degenerate in back pain sufferers like spinal discs degenerate.
(6) Integrate extension exercises into your day when your Sitka
chiropractor tells you it’s time to do so. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka
