Can I see a Chiropractor if I have had back surgery or other serious conditions?
Yes. Often the Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) is the first one to diagnose a serious condition such as a disc herniation or fracture. Daily, DC's succesfully manage these cases. Sometimes a DC will set up an appropriate consultation with another provider. The patient may either be co-managed or referred to the other provider for treatment. If you have had surgery chiropractic care may help prevent the common occurrence known as “Failed Back Surgery Syndrome.” Chiropractic care may help prevent repeated operations. In addition, many patients report increased flexability, increased strength and less pain. This is because patients are taught everything from how to properly get out of bed to how to bend with the least amount of stress to the spine. Graded spinal exercise regimes are then gradually introduced to help rehabilitate the patient.
