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

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

 
McHenry BACK SURGERY? STILL HAVE PAIN?
Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.

Most McHenry back pain patients go to back surgery expecting McHenry back pain relief. That expectation isn’t always met. Spengel 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 experience 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 Spengel 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. Spengel 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.

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

TIP OF THE MONTH:
Extension Exercise

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. Spengel Chiropractic can help!
