sufferers can benefit

of non-surgical care for back pain relief. Wilson Family Chiropractic is
the chiropractic care office in Millville for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is often proposed
as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that does
not produce the desired results, adding 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 groups like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic specializes in
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment called Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well assist
Millville back pain sufferers refrain from back
surgery and manage their back pain more self-sufficiently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers want to help themselves
as much as possible. Wilson Family Chiropractic knows this. Exercise is shown useful for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper type
of exercise is important, so we will discuss what is suitable for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based
exercise program found that the pain patients better functioned
and managed their pain condition more autonomously
and effectively. They did better at work, took
pleasure in hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising,
did more to manage their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, helped them experience
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits came
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers established a trial of exercise for
back pain patients headed to back surgery. They explained
the back pain condition to the patients carefully. 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 contemplate their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t
report 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 Millville back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Wilson Family Chiropractic.
Control not cure is a realistic goal when dealing
