Having surgery can be a stressful time in your life and many people focus on the surgery itself and oftentimes forget about the care they need after. Everybody heals differently but did you know one of the most useful therapies for your post-surgery therapy is chiropractic care? Chiropractic adjustments can allow your body to heal, relieve pain and discomfort, promote wellness, and more. Before beginning chiropractic treatment you should always discuss your options with your surgeon. 

Chiropractic care
is absolutely safe for most patients who undergo back surgery after they have healed from the procedure. About 22 million Americans visit chiropractors annually. Of these, 7.7 million, or 35%, are seeking relief from back pain. Here are some more things to consider according to WebMD. 

What Are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care?

Spinal manipulation and chiropractic care are generally considered safe, effective treatments for acute low back pain, the type of sudden injury that results from moving furniture or getting tackled. Acute back pain, which is more common than chronic pain, lasts no more than six weeks and typically gets better on its own. Research has also shown chiropractic care to be helpful in treating neck pain and headaches. In addition, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia may respond to the moderate pressure used both by chiropractors and practitioners of deep tissue massage.
