Richmond BACK SURGERY? STILL HAVE PAIN?
Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.
Many Richmond back pain patients undergo back surgery expecting Richmond back pain relief. That
expectation is not always met. Johnson Chiropractic hears this from Richmond back surgery patients and reads it
in the spine literature. 49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) due to a disc herniation is usual. (1) Post-surgical back
pain patients may discover that they have back pain
after Richmond back surgery. What are some choices?
Spinal manipulation and exercise is one relieving option. The
American College of Physicians and American Pain Society suggest
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 treated with Cox® Technic
- like they are at Johnson Chiropractic – found that 81% of
patients exhibited 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) Richmond chiropractic
relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation
of back pain relief. Johnson 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 undergone
back surgery expecting pain relief and post-surgically discovered
pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.
TIP OF THE MONTH:
Richmond back pain sufferers frequently
experience 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 requires strong back muscles to support
all its movements. Strengthening those extensor muscles to stop
Richmond back pain is important. Research shows
that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are
found in Richmond 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 Richmond
chiropractor tells you it is time to do so. Johnson Chiropractic
