Eugene Chiropractic Relief for Back Pain After Surgery

Back surgery. It is an option some choose for back pain relief. At one year follow up, generally around 50% of surgical patients report continued relief. What’s next? Another back surgery? Additional pain medications? A spine stimulator? Physical therapy? Chiropractic? Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic would add chiropractic care as a worthwhile approach before back surgery, and Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic  welcomes back pain patients to the Eugene back pain specialty practice even if they’ve already undergone back surgery and continued to have pain. Chiropractic is a non-surgical method to alleviate Eugene spine pain, and Cox Technic is the chiropractic treatment protocol that is based on evidence-based research with documented clinical outcomes of alleviating and controlling back pain. Cox Technic fulfills Eugene back pain patients’ desire for relief. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic presents it to their Eugene back pain patients if they find themselves with post-surgical continued pain or the condition diagnosis of “failed back surgery syndrome” (FBSS).

Post Surgical Continued Pain Diagnosis 

A FBSS diagnosis is certainly not one a post-surgical back pain patient wants to consider let alone deal with. It’s a possibility though. Often another surgery is not the desired answer for these particular back pain sufferers. Often such a patient is transferred to physical therapy, advised to try medications or injections, even implanted with a spine stimulator. Often such a patient welcomes options beyond those medical approaches. Sometimes such a patient wishes he or she had tried something else before back surgery. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic stands ready with its Eugene chiropractic care to aid at any stage of the process of back pain and its relief.
 
Chiropractic Care for FBSS 

Low back pain care with chiropractic is shown to be equally effective as physical therapy with no serious adverse side-effects. This review report further states that “the decision to seek or to refer patients for chiropractic care should be based on patient preference and values.” (1) That’s what evidence-based medicine is all about: seek out the best evidence from the research, pursue care from the back pain specialist who is clinically adept, and meet patient expectations and preferences. That’s what chiropractic research continues to do: produce the research and publish the outcomes for the public to base its decision on what is best for managing their back pain.

Decision Making 

How does one make that decision though? When a surgeon proposes surgery or a pain medicine doctor offers medication or a physical therapist offers exercise or a chiropractor offers spinal manipulation in one form or another, how does the relief-seeking Eugene back pain patient decide? Have all of these providers present patients with impartial information about the potential benefits and risks of the options. (2) Everyone knows though that when the pain is intense, the first offer of relief is really appealing. Being human, the healthcare provider seeing a patient in pain wants to help that back pain patient get rid of the pain fast, too. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic certainly does. Our Eugene back pain sufferers are appreciative when they get relief after care.

So Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic wants to share recent chiropractic-outcome articles with Eugene back pain patients: spinal manipulation relief for post-surgical continued pain patients and for post-implanted and currently wearing spinal stimulator patients. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients, 80% of patients showed greater than 50% relief of pain at the conclusion of care (3 months) in a mean of 49 days and 11 visits, and 78.6% continued with their 50% relief of pain at 24 months follow up. The amount of relief was 71.6% at 3 months and 70% at 24 months. (3) Then, researchers tell that no adverse effects from chiropractic manipulation or mobilization treatment applied to patients who have implanted spine stimulators for pain control are seen in their findings. (4) Finally, a post-surgical patient reacts positively to rehabilitation and Cox Technic spinal manipulation care, registering pain dropping from 8 to 3 on a 10 point scale over 12 visits in 3 months. (5) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic finds that a combination approach for pain relief is often best for our Eugene chiropractic patients.

Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic makes a chiropractic treatment plan custom-made for each Eugene chiropractic patient that involves the following: recommendation of a variety of approaches as appropriate, cooperation with fellow healthcare colleagues as needed, presentation of the newest in clinical outcomes of care options available, and standing by you, our Eugene post-surgical continued back pain patient, all the way.
