Rethwill Chiropractic Clinics September 2017 Healthy Newsletter


Research reports that those who undergo rehabilitation after back disc surgery find themselves with more favorable 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 so. For those who face continued pain after back surgery (also known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Eugene chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without further surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeing a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients gained greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be sufficient relief to get 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 feeling back pain post-back surgery, Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic can help with gentle, research-documented, Eugene chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is helpful for the nutrition of your spinal discs! The discs are made up of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise does not reduce glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus performing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your chances of low back pain. (4) Talk with Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as accompaniments to your Eugene chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
