Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, researchers share
treatment outcomes of patients with implanted spinal stimulators for
post-surgical continued back pain management. Patients with these
devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain post
surgically. After being treated with chiropractic spinal

physician is “Do no harm”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule
in this study’s findings. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka offers Sitka

NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall
improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new
meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one
of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) Another
study shares that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the
difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically significant.
It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka
