Healthy News from Innate Wisdom for March 2017

No Adverse Effects Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators Treated with Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation

In a new report, authors report on treatment outcomes of patients with implanted spinal stimulators for post-surgical continued back pain management. Patients with these devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain post surgically. After being treated with chiropractic spinal manipulation or mobilization, the patients in the study reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a physician is “Do no harm”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule in this study’s findings. Innate Wisdom offers New York City chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!

Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly

Chronic neck pain patients seem to walk more stiffly. Why? Their stride is shorter and their mid-spine doesn’t rotate as much. Walking like this will affect the spine well into the future. (2) Innate Wisdom’s best advice: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Get New York City chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.

Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!

National guidelines suggest that we all get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. Only 52% of us New York City non-back pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It is shown that 150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back pain patients going. They also experience less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so important. Innate Wisdom encourages a simple walk a day to all New York City chiropractic patients.

Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar

NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) NSAIDs are reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference is not clinically significant between NSAIDs and placebo. It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Innate Wisdom’s non-drug New York City chiropractic care is pain-relieving!
