Chiropractic Treatment: Chronic Spine Pain After Fusion

Chronic Spine Pain After Fusion

In our practices, we see many patients with less than optimal results from spinal surgery. Although in many cases surgery can save lives and improve immediate outcomes, problems can arise in areas adjacent to the surgical site, especially after fusion of the spine, sometimes resulting in chronic spine pain for the patient.

One of our discoveries has been that applying our treatment protocols in these cases can be very helpful in controlling pain, and helping to restore better function.

We once treated a patient who is several years after cervical fusion with unrelenting interscapular pain (right between the shoulder blades). I had taken care of this gentleman before surgery many years earlier.

This patient tried numerous drugs, pain blocks, physical therapy, all without significant improvements. As I have done in lumbar spine patients on several times, we applied treatment to the affected area.

He experienced almost immediate relief with our combination manual therapy and neurostimulator application. He gets some relief with a home care unit, but returns to the office for periodic treatments.

Here is another case where applying what we have learned about treating chronic pain has really helped this gentleman live a more normal life!

Save yourself years of chronic spine pain misery.

Chiropractic Treatment: Low Back Pain and Spinal Care

A few decades ago, the chiropractic profession practiced in a relative absence of good scientific data concerning its main therapeutic tool, spinal manipulation.

The success of this profession and this treatment with patient care was empirically based. The evidence basis of spinal manipulation, however, has changed dramatically in recent years with a large number of well done clinical trials that have filled the information void.

No other back pain treatment has been subjected to such examination…when numerous clinical trials are considered together, the evidence in favor of chiropractic manipulation is overwhelming.

Analysis of the volume of research available on the topic of spinal manipulation and low back pain can be surprising to many health care providers who do not practice this specialty. The volume of research on spinal manipulation for acute low back pain is greater than for any other single treatment used for this condition.

The majority of the clinical trials on spinal manipulation for acute low back pain have found this treatment to be beneficial, outperforming the comparative or control treatments which have included virtually all other commonly used therapies.

The bottom line is that spinal manipulation words to relieve low back pain!

Manipulation has consistently outperformed any other therapy, compared to ultrasound only, traction only, exercise, bedrest and medications.

In most cases, it has provided benefits with range of motion, cost-effectiveness, decrease in lost productivity, patient satisfaction and pain relief.
