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

In a new report, authors share treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal stimulators for pain management after back surgery. Patients with these devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain after back surgery. 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”. This study shows how spinal manipulation and mobilization do just that. The Novelli Wellness Center offers Buffalo, NY chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!

Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly

Patients with chronic neck pain have a shorter stride and less thoracic spinal rotation when walking. This will likely have long term effects on the spine. (2) What to do? The Novelli Wellness Center’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain become chronic. Seek Buffalo, NY chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk more easily.

150 minutes of Exercise a Week – For All of Us Especially After Back Surgery

National guidelines recommend that we all get 150 minutes of exercise a week. How many of us Buffalo, NY folks do? Just 52%! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this.

The Novelli Wellness Center urges all of our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients to do something every day like take a little walk.

Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective Over Placebo

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 relevant between NSAIDs and placebo. It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo.
