McHenry BACK SURGERY? STILL HAVE PAIN?
Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.
Many McHenry back pain patients go
to back surgery expecting McHenry back pain relief. That
expectation isn’t always met. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is
told by McHenry back surgery patients and studies it
in the spine literature. 49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) due to a disc herniation is common. (1) Post-surgical back
pain patients may find that they have back pain
after McHenry back surgery. What are some options?
Spinal manipulation and exercise is one such option. The
American College of Physicians and American Pain Society recommend
spinal manipulation for low back pain relief. (2) One patient experienced
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 OrthoIllinois Chiropractic – 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 2 years’ follow up. (4) McHenry chiropractic
relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation
of back pain relief. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic 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
describes a patient who had experienced
back surgery expecting pain relief and post-surgically discovered
pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.
TIP OF THE MONTH:
McHenry back pain sufferers frequently
experience 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 needs strong back muscles to support
all its motions. Strengthening those extensor muscles to prevent
McHenry back pain is essential. Research reports
that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are
found in McHenry chiropractic patients with chronic low back pain. (5)
Why? Back muscles degenerate in back pain sufferers like spinal discs degenerate.
(6) Add extension exercises into your day when your McHenry
chiropractor tells you it’s appropriate. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic
