Before undergoing back surgery, Nashua back pain sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research continues to share the benefit of non-surgical care for back pain relief. InNashua Moriarty Chiropractic is the chiropractic care clinic for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently recommended as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that does not produce the desired results, 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 promoted by medical physician groups like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Moriarty Chiropractic uses a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment called Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well help Nashua back pain sufferers refrain from back surgery and control their back pain more independently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers want to help themselves as much as possible. Moriarty Chiropractic realizes this. Exercise is documented to be useful for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper type of exercise is important, so we will talk about what is suitable for you! Maybe Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based exercise program found that the pain patients better functioned and coped with their pain condition more independently and efficiently. They did better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising, did more to make do with their own pain conditions without outside help. These, in turn, helped them discover a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits resulted 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 do. They found that back pain patients who experienced this pre-surgery program of description and exercise benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers felt better exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain sufferers’ frame of mind improved as they exercised. They had time to reflect on their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not describe symptom improvement responded well to this program as they felt more confident managing their pain themselves. (4) These are all beneficial outcomes Nashua back pain patients discover in their chiropractic care at Moriarty Chiropractic. Control not cure is a reasonable objective when dealing with back pain.
