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.
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 encourages a simple walk a day to all Millville chiropractic
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
