No Adverse Effects Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators Treated with Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation
In a new report, authors report on treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal stimulators for pain management after back surgery. 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. Young Chiropractic offers Easley 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? Young Chiropractic’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Get Easley chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
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. Only 52% of us Easley non-back pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It’s shown that 150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back pain patients going. These post-surgical patients also feel less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so effective. Young Chiropractic urges all of our Easley chiropractic patients to do something every day like take a little walk.
Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar
NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) NSAIDs are reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference is not clinically significant between NSAIDs and placebo. It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo.
