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

Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC offers back pain relief to patients who have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. 

Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.

Many La Grande back pain patients go to back surgery expecting La Grande back pain relief. That expectation is not always met. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is told by La Grande back surgery patients and reads it in the spine literature.  49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) because of a disc herniation is common. (1) Post-surgical back pain patients may discover that they have back pain after La Grande back surgery. What are some choices? Spinal manipulation and exercise is one relieving option. The American College of Physicians and American Pain Society recommend 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 cared for with Cox® Technic - like they are at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC – found 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) La Grande chiropractic relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation of back pain relief. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC 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 found pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.

Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC recommends extensor strengthening exercises when back pain patients are ready for them.

Extension Exercise

La Grande 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 motions. Strengthening those extensor muscles to prevent La Grande back pain is important. Research shows that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in La Grande 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 La Grande chiropractor tells you it’s time to do so. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC can help!
