sufferers can benefit
from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps sharing the benefit
of non-surgical care for back pain relief. InSitka Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka

CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently proposed
as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that does
not work, including 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 organizations like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka uses
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well assist
Sitka back pain sufferers refrain from back
surgery and manage their back pain more independently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves
as much as possible. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka realizes this. Exercise is shown useful for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right form
of exercise is vital, so we’ll discuss what is suitable for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based
exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned
and managed their pain condition more independently
and effectively. They performed better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising,
did more to make do with their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, helped them enjoy
a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits arose
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers set up a trial of exercise for
back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They explained
the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They set
up exercise programs for each patient to perform. They
discovered that back pain patients who experienced
this pre-surgery program of description and exercise gained
benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers felt better
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 felt more confident in being able to
do some self-management of their pain. (4)
These are all beneficial outcomes Sitka back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka.
Control not cure is a realistic objective when dealing
with back pain.
