Manipulation Under Anesthesia for Shoulder Pain
While traditional chiropractic care helps the majority of people who suffer from shoulder pain, there is a small percentage of people who are in such pain and have lost so much range of motion from their shoulder a manipulation under anesthesia for shoulder pain may be the best solution for them. A manipulation under anesthesia is where the patient is put to sleep for half an hour and a range of stretches and adjustments are made to the patient in order to break up adhesions, scar tissue and the like and reduce pain and increase range of motion.
Manipulation Under Anesthesia for Low Back Pain
I have performed many manipulation under anesthesia for low back pain procedures over the years. For those chronic low back pain sufferers, it is an extremely viable and successful procedure that helps people manage pain, reduce pain and even eradicate pain. I love to see my Myrtle Beach patients with less pain.
Why do you get Back Pain in the first place?
The primary cause of low back pain that I see in my office boils down to the compression of the lumbar joint. Added pressure over the years increases dysfunction, causes degeneration, herniations form, discs bulge, nerves get pinched. Muscles then spasms, increase in tightness and then increase the pressure on the joints as well. Range of motion decreases, pain increases, and everything rubs against each other creating inflammation and more pain. The whole effect is like a snowball and it can get badly out of control.
Manipulation Under Anesthesia Reasons
Manipulation under anesthesia helps chronic disc disorders in the neck and lower back, it helps fibromyalgia sufferers in breaking up tissue build up and it helps people with frozen shoulder syndrome. These are perhaps the three main areas I see in people that MUA helps. For long term chronic pain sufferers, manipulation under anesthesia is a very sound treatment that helps reduce or eradicate the pain as well as restoring range of motion. I have performed many manipulation under anesthesia procedures up in New Jersey and see a very high success rate in happy patients. The three main manipulation under anesthesia reasons to consider this treatment are very strong, and provide an excellent form of treatment instead of full on surgery.
Manipulation Under Anesthesia – Myrtle Beach Chiropractor Tells All
Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) is a procedure of aggressive stretches, pushes and adjustments. It is performed with the patient under anesthesia, and typically lasts about 20 to 30 minutes. It’s performed in out patient, so it’s a same day procedure. You should have someone bring you in and take you home, and patients should be able to go back to work the following day. Typically, the patient will be sore afterwards, akin to a big workout, but this is to be expected. It is normally done in a series of three visits, one per week, and this has been found to gain the best success rate.
