Augusta BACK SURGERY? STILL HAVE PAIN?
Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.
Many Augusta back pain patients go to back surgery expecting Augusta back pain relief. That expectation is not always met. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is told by Augusta 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 usual. (1) Post-surgical back pain patients may discover that they have back pain after Augusta back surgery. What are some options? Spinal manipulation and exercise is one such option. The American College of Physicians and American Pain Society suggest 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 treated with Cox® Technic - like they are at Lombardy 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 persistent pain relief at 2 years’ follow up. (4) Augusta chiropractic relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation of back pain relief. Lombardy 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 describes a patient who had undergone back surgery expecting pain relief and post-surgically discovered pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.
TIP OF THE MONTH:
Augusta back pain sufferers frequently find relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing backward into extension. (Read the SPINE article May 2018 on our website about why!) Extension is not all bad. A healthy spine can extend. A healthy spine needs solid back muscles to support all its movements. Strengthening those extensor muscles to stop Augusta back pain is important. Research shows that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in Augusta 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 Augusta chiropractor tells you it is appropriate. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic can help!
