For some patients surgery is the only option to help with pain. While some patients respond well to surgery others do not. If you are a patient who has had back surgery; a spinal fusion, laminectomy, disc replacement, or even harrington rods, and is experiencing discomfort in most cases Chiropractic care can help.
After completing my Doctorate at National Chiropractic College I spent time at The Texas Back Institute working with many post surgical patients. Some of these patients were pain free for years after surgery and then began experiencing pain again. Others didn't get relief from surgery and were looking for alternatives. Whatever the case may be, I have much to offer in treating these often difficult cases with the use of Chiropractic care.
An extensive history and exam must be done along with several x-rays to ensure that the surgical hardware in the spine has not moved or become unstable. Most post surgical patients can be manually adjusted 3 months post surgery. X-rays are always done to ensure that the hardware is stable before treatment begins.
