Back surgery. It is an option some choose for back pain relief. About 50% of them report relief at one year later. What’s next? More back surgery? Additional pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Young Chiropractic would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile approach before back surgery, and Young Chiropractic welcomes back pain patients to the Easley back pain specialty practice even if they’ve already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical approach to alleviate Easley spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that is based on evidence-based research with documented clinical outcomes of relieving and controlling back pain. It satisfies Easley back pain patients seeking relief. Young Chiropractic offers it to their Easley back pain patients if they find themselves with post-surgical continued pain or the condition diagnosis of “failed back surgery syndrome” (FBSS).
Post Surgical Continued Pain Diagnosis
A FBSS diagnosis is surely not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to ponder let alone deal with. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery is not the desired answer for these types of back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is referred for physical therapy, advised to try medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient wants to try anything but those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Young Chiropractic stands ready with its Easley chiropractic care
to aid at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
Chiropractic Care for FBSS
Low back pain care with chiropractic shows itself to be equally effective as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report goes on to say that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be based on patient preference and values.” (1) That is what evidence-based medicine is all about: seek out the best evidence from the research, pursue care from the back pain specialist who is clinically adept, and meet patient expectations and preferences. That’s what chiropractic research continues to do: produce the research and publish the outcomes for the public to decide what is best for dealing with their back pain.
How does one make that decision though? Surgeons, pain control specialists, physical therapists and chiropractors all offer their various approaches that seem plausible for relief, the pain suffering patient may have trouble deciding. What might help? Have all of these providers provide patients with unbiased information about the potential benefits and risks of the options. (2) Everyone knows though that when the pain is intense, the first offer of relief is really appealing. Being human, the healthcare provider seeing a patient in pain wants to help that back pain patient get rid of the pain fast, too. Young Chiropractic certainly does. Our Easley back pain sufferers are thankful when they get relief after care.

So Young Chiropractic shares these recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Easley back pain patients: spinal manipulation relief for post-surgical continued pain patients and for post-implanted and currently wearing spinal stimulator patients. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients, 80% of patients showed more than 50% relief of pain at the conclusion of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% continued with their 50% relief of pain at 24 months follow up. The amount of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers report that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are observed in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient reacts positively to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering pain decreasing from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Young Chiropractic finds that a combination approach for pain relief is often most productive for our Easley chiropractic patients.
