Healthy News from Wilson Family Chiropractic for March 2017

No Adverse Effects Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators Treated with Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation

In a new report, authors 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 manipulation or mobilization, patients with these stimulators reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a physician is “Do no harm”. This study shows how spinal manipulation and mobilization do just that. Wilson Family Chiropractic offers Millville chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!

Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly

Chronic neck pain patients seem to walk more stiffly. Why? Their stride is shorter and their mid-spine does not rotate as much. This will likely have long term effects on the spine. (2) What to do? Wilson Family Chiropractic’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Get Millville chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk more easily.

150 minutes of Exercise a Week – For All of Us Especially After Back Surgery

National guidelines suggest that we all get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. How many of us Millville folks do? Just 52%! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It’s shown that 150 minutes keeps post-surgical back pain patients moving and away from another surgery. These post-surgical patients also experience less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so effective. Our Millville chiropractic practice urges all of our Millville chiropractic patients to do something every day like take a little walk.

Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar

A meta-analysis, the highest form of research reporting, reports that NSAIDSdespite their being. one of the most frequently prescribed drugs for sciatic leg pain offer similar pain relief and overall improvement to placebo with a higher risk of adverse side-effects. (4) Another study reports 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, Wilson Family Chiropractic’s non-drug Millville chiropractic care is pain-relieving!
