Before undergoing back surgery, La Grande back pain
sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps sharing the value
of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. InLa Grande Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC
is the chiropractic care clinic for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently suggested
as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that does
not work, including non-drug
therapy for acute low back pain – spinal manipulation – and for chronic or subacute
back pain – spinal manipulation, intensive interdisciplinary rehab, exercise,
acupuncture, massage, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy - is promoted
by medical physician groups like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC delivers
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment known
as Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well help
La Grande back pain sufferers avoid back
surgery and manage their back pain more self-sufficiently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers want to help themselves
as much as possible. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows this. Exercise is shown useful for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper form
of exercise is key, so we’ll discuss what is right for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based
exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned
and managed their pain condition more autonomously
and effectively. They did better at work, took
pleasure in hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising,
did more to make do with their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, motivated them to discover
a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits arose
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers set up a trial of exercise for
back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They described
the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They established exercise programs for each patient to do. They
found that back pain patients who experienced
this pre-surgery program of description and exercise benefitted in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ disposition got
better as they exercised. They had time to contemplate their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t
describe symptom improvement responded well to this
program as they thought themselves more confident managing their pain themselves. (4)
These are all beneficial outcomes La Grande back pain
patients discover in their chiropractic care at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC.
Control not cure is a reasonable goal when dealing
with back pain.
