Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for
Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects
In a new report, authors share
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 after back surgery. 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”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule
in this study’s findings. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic offers Montreal
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!
Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly
Patients with chronic neck pain have a shorter stride and less
thoracic spinal rotation when walking. This will likely have long term effects on the
spine. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic’s
best advice: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Seek Montreal
chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.
Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!
National guidelines recommend that we all
get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. How many of us
Montreal folks do? Just 52%! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery
patients do this. It is shown that
150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back
pain patients going. These post-surgical patients also experience
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so effective. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic promotes a walk a day to all Montreal chiropractic patients.
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) Another
study shares 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, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
