No Adverse Effects Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators Treated with Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation
In a new report, authors share
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

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. New Roads Chiropractic Center offers New Roads
chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!

another surgery. These post-surgical patients also experience
less back pain after surgery. (3)
Physical exercise is so important. New Roads Chiropractic Center urges all of our
New Roads chiropractic patients to do something every day like take a

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) Another
study shares that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the
difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically important.
It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, New Roads Chiropractic Center’s
non-drug New Roads chiropractic care is pain-relieving! Contact New Roads Chiropractic Center today
