Chiropractic care can help with post-surgery recovery
My passion has always been to promote healing through chiropractic care, and by doing so, our patients can live a pain-free life without having to rely on medication or resorting to surgery. With that said, accidents and degenerative diseases can happen to anyone — making surgery unavoidable. The good news is that even if you’ve had surgery, chiropractic care can help with post-surgery recovery.
Just a few of the benefits of chiropractic care for post-surgery recovery include:
- Pain management
- Relaxing muscles
- Exercises to increase strength and range of motion
- Improving circulation
- Eliminating skeletal imbalances
- Limiting reliance on medication
- Improving nervous system communication
- Getting you back on your feet faster
Will chiropractic care help with my post-surgery recovery?
Everyone’s post-surgery situation is different, but for the most part, chiropractic care combined with a balanced physical rehab program can make a considerable difference in your recovery. I can say this confidently because it happened to me. On June 16, I had significant back surgery to repair my spine from years of wear and tear. Most of my pain was because of a car wreck in 2016 that pushed one segment of my spine forward by seven millimeters, causing me to experience numbness in my leg. The surgery was unavoidable. It was also long overdue. But when the doctors told me “no bending, lifting, or twisting for 12 weeks,” I didn’t listen.
I knew that I had to get my body moving to promote healing.
By Week 3, I was walking, swimming, and doing water aerobics 5-6 days a week. Within a week of starting that regimen, I noticed a significant drop in pain. By Week 6, I started stretch therapy with our very own Jennifer Sprock and rehab. Naturally, I did chiropractic adjustments, too, which were more than helpful in relieving pressure and promoting healing above and below the surgical area.
Am I 100% recovered? No. But I am back at work full-time. I genuinely believe that I am much further along because I listened to my body and believed in chiropractic care to help me feel better faster.
