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

Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office offers back pain relief to patients who have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. 

Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.

Many Groton back pain patients choose back surgery expecting Groton back pain relief. That expectation is not always met. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is told by Groton back surgery patients and studies it in the spine literature.  49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) because of a disc herniation is usual. (1) Post-surgical back pain patients may find that they have back pain after Groton back surgery. What are some options? 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 experienced 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 Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office – 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) Groton chiropractic relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation of back pain relief. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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.

Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office recommends extensor strengthening exercises when back pain patients are ready for them.

Extension Exercise

Groton back pain sufferers frequently experience relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing backward into extension. (Check out 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 Groton back pain is essential. Research reports that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in Groton 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 Groton chiropractor tells you it is appropriate. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office can help!
