Before undergoing back surgery, Montreal back pain
sufferers can benefit
from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps sharing the value
of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is
the chiropractic care office in Montreal for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently suggested
as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that does
not work, 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 promoted
by medical physician groups like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic specializes in
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment called Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well assist
Montreal back pain sufferers refrain from back
surgery and control their back pain more independently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers want to help themselves
as much as possible. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows this. Exercise is shown useful for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right type
of exercise is vital, so we’ll discuss what’s suitable for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based
exercise program found that the pain patients better functioned
and managed their pain condition more independently
and effectively. They performed better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising,
did more to make do with their own pain conditions without
outside help. These, in turn, helped them discover
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits arose
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers established a trial of exercise for
back pain patients headed to back surgery. They described
the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They established exercise programs for each patient to do. They
discovered that back pain patients who experienced
this pre-surgery program of description and exercise benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ disposition improved as they exercised. They had time to reflect on their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not
report symptom improvement responded well to this
program as they thought themselves more confident managing their pain themselves. (4)
These are all beneficial outcomes Montreal back pain
patients discover in their chiropractic care at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic.
Control not cure is a reasonable objective when dealing
with back pain.
