Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery Groton Chiropractic Care and Exercise

Before undergoing back surgery, Groton back pain sufferers can benefit from pre-back surgery chiropractic care and exercise. Research continues to share the usefulness of non-surgical treatment for back pain relief. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is the chiropractic care office in Groton for both!


Self-care is often proposed as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that does not produce the desired results, 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 organizations like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office uses a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well help Groton back pain sufferers avoid back surgery and manage their back pain more independently.


Back pain sufferers want to help themselves as much as possible. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office realizes this. Exercise is shown valuable for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right form of exercise is key, so we’ll talk about what’s proper for you! Maybe Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned and coped with their pain condition more independently and efficiently. They performed better at work, took pleasure in hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising, did more to manage their own pain conditions without outside help. These, in turn, motivated them to discover a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits came without back surgery.


Researchers set up a trial of exercise for back pain patients headed to 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 underwent this pre-surgery program of description and exercise gained benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain sufferers’ mood improved as they exercised. They had time to reflect on their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not describe symptom improvement reacted well to this program as they felt more confident in being able to do some self-management of their pain. (4) These are all positive outcomes Groton back pain patients discover in their chiropractic care at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office. Control not cure is a realistic goal when dealing with back pain.
