My father is suffering from severe back pain. Can it be treated with manual adjustment of the spine?
Drug free therapy is always the first port of call.
An examination needs to be completed to find out if there is a sciatic issue or nerve entrapment or if its muscular etc.
To ease your mind, you can see a chiropractor post surgery. I have personally treated numerous patients post surgery and got them to full recovery.
The chiropractor can help you to increase mobility and with rehabilitation.=20
Chiropractors are not taught to only manilpulate patients but to examine and assess their patients and their needs going forward. They will treat inflammation and soft tissue injuries and pain from the surgery as well.
I hope this helps
