Watch the above video by Dr. Bart Hodgins to learn how to manage your post surgical needs and for other guidance on how chiropractic care can help you.
How can we care chiropractically for your spine following surgery for spinal fusion? Essentially, you now have one vertebrae instead of two, and perhaps you are thinking you can no longer seek help from a chiropractor. Not so! Here we look at the alignment above and below to see what is happening there, as adjustments below and above the fusion site can help relieve undue pressure on the fused area. Do you have one leg shorter now? Perhaps a heel lift could also help.
