Chiropractic Care After Back Surgery
Surgery is not always guaranteed to resolve problems causing an individual’s back pain. Many patients who undergo back surgery experience discomfort after their surgery that could be helped by chiropractic care. Depending on the procedure, most patients should wait until they are adequately healed prior to beginning treatment. Since chiropractic care aims to optimize health over a lifetime, Dr. Sophia Argeropoulos can be a helpful addition to your healthcare team. Our chiropractor will perform a thorough exam to better understand your medical history and specific details about your surgery. Here are some of the ways chiropractic care can help after surgery:
- Improved Motion – Surgery can restrict your range of motion in injured areas. Chiropractic care can help you maintain flexibility and motion in your spine.
- Decrease Pain – Many patients experience ongoing pain after surgery. Manual chiropractic adjustments can help reduce ongoing pain and provide significant relief.
- Improved Stability – Even after surgery, your spine needs to maintain stability around the surgical site. If surgery has hindered your range of motion, the surrounding tissues may experience more stress to compensate for these changes. Chiropractic care can help restore stability and improve biomechanical function.
Dr. Sophia Argeropoulos excels in the natural and effective management of spinal conditions. Routine chiropractic care after your procedure can help improve your surgical outcome and help you move better after surgery.
