Why Post-Surgical Medical Chiropractic Adjustments:
When you go through surgery, your body may be placed
in many different awkward positions in order for the surgeon to
adequately access the body area targeted for surgery, often spinal
surgery meant to relieve neck, upper back, or lumbar back pain.
There are several reasons to seek chiropractic care post-surgery:
1) To facilitate the healing process and to help
restore mobility. After back surgery, an experienced knowledgeable
chiropractor may help you recover faster and heal faster.
2) In some cases the back surgery may not relieve
the neck, back, or lumbar back pain at all or shift the pain to a
different area. Many patients have more then one cervical spine
surgery when there is no relief of the underlying pain and continue to
suffer from the same pain after multiple surgeries.
Neck and Back Pain May Be The Result Of Your Atlas
Being Out Of Alignment
Atlas Misalignment May Cause Your Neck and Back Pain
Neck and back surgery should always be a last resort
but that should be discussed in depth with your physician. In more
severe cases; such as: cracked vertebrae, severe curvature of the spine
(sideways or bent over), or degenerative disc that is pressing on the
nerves, surgery may be indicated as your best option. However,
there are many conditions that may be effectively treated by a
chiropractor without surgery; back pain, pressure on the sciatic nerve,
and herniated discs.
If you have postsurgical pain or no relief of pain
for which the surgery was intended, you should contact an Atlas
Orthogonist to have a different evaluation and perspective of what might
be causing the underlying pain.
Post-surgical adjustments to
facilitate healing may also be discussed with your attending physician.
There are some back surgeries that require extensive healing prior to
any physical exercise and any spinal manipulations. Typically, a
spinal fusion patient will be precluded from any spinal manipulations. Patients
will receive post-surgery discharge instructions from your physician
outlining any relevant physical limitations of your surgery and they
should be adhered to.
