New Roads Chiropractic Centers September 2017 Healthy Newsletter


Research reports that those who go through rehabilitation after back disc surgery have more favorable treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They go back to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being directed to do it. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), New Roads chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without further surgical intervention. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients visiting a chiropractor using Cox Technic documents that 81% of these patients gained greater than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be enough relief to get these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are suffering back pain post-back surgery, New Roads Chiropractic Center can help with gentle, research-documented, New Roads chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is good for the nutritional state of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are made chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers describe that physical exercise does not reduce glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week reduces your odds of low back pain. (4) Talk with New Roads Chiropractic Center about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your New Roads chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!

Thank you for entrusting your spinal health and healing to New Roads Chiropractic Center and referring New Roads Chiropractic Center to your New Roads friends and family.
