Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Offices September 2017 Healthy Newsletter


Research documents that those who go through rehabilitation after back disc surgery experience more favorable treatment outcomes in the year after the back surgery. They go back to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being told to do so. For those who face continued pain after back surgery (also known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Groton chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help ease the pain without another surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients visiting a chiropractor using Cox Technic reports that 81% of these patients acquired greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be adequate relief to allow these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehabilitation after back surgery and/or are suffering back pain post-back surgery, Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office can help with gentle, research-documented, Groton chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is helpful for the nutrition of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise does not lessen glycosaminoglycans; exercise increases their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus performing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your chances of low back pain. (4) Ask Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Groton chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
