Young Chiropractics September 2017 Healthy Newsletter


Research states that those who undergo rehabilitation after back disc surgery experience better treatment outcomes in the year after the back surgery. They go back to work. (1) Some back surgery patients do not undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being told to do it. For those who experience continued pain after back surgery (also referred to as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Easley chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without further surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients achieved more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be enough relief to return these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend did not do any rehabilitation after back surgery and/or are suffering back pain post-back surgery, Young Chiropractic can help with gentle, research-documented, Easley chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is beneficial for the nutrition of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise does not deplete glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus performing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your chances of low back pain. (4) Ask Young Chiropractic about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Easley chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!

Thank you for trusting your spinal health and healing to Young Chiropractic and referring Young Chiropractic to your Easley friends and family.
