Eugene Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain After Back Surgery Surgery and Integrates Extension Exercise into the Treatment Plan

Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic offers back pain relief to patients who have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. 

Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.

Many Eugene back pain patients undergo back surgery expecting Eugene back pain relief. That expectation is not always met. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic hears this from Eugene back surgery patients and studies it in the spine literature.  49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) because of a disc herniation is common. (1) Post-surgical back pain patients may find that they have back pain after Eugene back surgery. What are some options? Spinal manipulation and exercise is one relieving option. The American College of Physicians and American Pain Society recommend spinal manipulation for low back pain relief. (2) One patient reported 89% improvement with 12 spinal manipulation sessions plus exercise. (3) A study of 69 post-surgical back pain patients cared for with Cox® Technic - like they are at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic – discovered that 81% of patients showed at least 50% reduction of pain at the end of 3 months of care. 78.6% of those patients had continued pain relief at 24 months follow up. (4) Eugene chiropractic relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation of back pain relief. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic invites you or a suffering friend or family member to visit today.

Listen to this PODCAST on The Back Doctors’ Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson in which Dr. David Atiyeh shares the case of a patient who had experienced back surgery expecting pain relief and post-surgically discovered pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.

Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic recommends extensor strengthening exercises when back pain patients are ready for them.

Extension Exercise

Eugene back pain sufferers often find relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing backward into extension. (Check out the SPINE article May 2018 on our website about why!) Extension is not all bad. A healthy spine can extend. A healthy spine requires strong back muscles to support all its motions. Strengthening those extensor muscles to prevent Eugene back pain is essential. Research shows that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in Eugene chiropractic patients with chronic low back pain. (5) Why? Back muscles degenerate in back pain sufferers like spinal discs degenerate. (6) Integrate extension exercises into your day when your Eugene chiropractor tells you it’s time to do so. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic can help!
