Many people ask Dr. Oscar Noriega why they should see a chiropractor before having surgery. And he tells them that the main reason he recommends seeing a chiropractor is that it’s always better to try a non-invasive procedure before going under a knife or even having hardware put in.
There are many options available, ranging from physical therapy to acupuncture. Massage therapy is quite effective as well. Of course, chiropractic is extremely effective at stabilizing your spine, not having to go under the knife and have surgery.
Revolution Health Center clinic also sees patients before surgery. Yes, not many know, but some people come here specifically to optimize their body in preparation for surgery. And these patients usually end up recovering from surgery much faster than other patients.
This is because we spend some time caring and preparing your body for surgery.
The spine is never quite the same after surgery, especially after the hardware is put in. Many patients visit us after surgery to keep their spine as strong and as stable as possible.
AVOIDING SURGERY IS ANOTHER BENEFIT OF CHIROPRACTIC
Yes, sometimes you may need another surgery after one back surgery. It’s because surgery generally involves fusing the segment that’s causing neck pain.
The back has seven individual vertebrae to handle the stresses of life, mobility, and gravity. Once two or three segments are removed, the segments above and below tend to wear a little faster and develop degenerative and arthritic changes.
That’s because the other segments have to work a little bit harder to keep you upright, mobile, living alive, and doing your everyday work, including family time.
OTHER REASONS TO VISIT YOUR CHIROPRACTOR
Avoiding surgery and opting for a non-invasive treatment option is the main reason to try chiropractic adjustments. However, there are also some other benefits:
Chiropractic treatment offers stress relief because a misaligned spine can cause mental and physical stress on the body. Spinal adjustments help reduce muscular tightness and balance the body to reduce stress.
Improve Poor Posture
We have numerous patients visiting us for curved spines and poor postures because of computer overuse or too much texting. Spinal manipulation can improve your posture.
Chronic pain can affect your mood. We can help by balancing your body’s nervous system and chemicals to provide pain relief and resolve problems like ADHD and depression.
Improved Body Immunity
Regular chiropractic care improves the body’s immune system, affected by a poorly working nervous system. The recovery procedure is quicker when the nervous system works properly.
Many patients visit us for sleep problems because of stress, body aches, and pain. Proper spinal alignment helps reduce pain, which improves sleep over time.
Treats Various Health Issues
Chiropractic care involves much more than treating back pain. We can help treat various other conditions like asthma, headaches and migraines, allergies, scoliosis, TMJ disorders, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, and sciatica nerve pain.
This is the reason why we recommend trying as many non-invasive options as possible before surgery. If you are scheduled to or considering surgery, we can help to prevent a second and third surgery.
Besides, surgeries are expensive and bring extensive recovery procedures with the discomfort. Having the best quality of life by avoiding surgery is always a good discussion.
So, visit Revolution Health Center, or call 615-867-7693 if you or somebody you know are either considering surgery or have had surgery in the past and want to stabilize and strengthen your spine.
