Q&A: Will laser chiropractic help after spine surgery?

Ask A Doctor Question:

Dr. Bill Rice, DC, LAc, FACCN, DCBCN -

Damaged nerves often result from spinal surgery, and nerves take a long time to heal.
Acupuncture or laser therapy can be very helpful for these conditions, but please don't look for immediate results.
It also depends on the age and health of the individual. Proper nutrition and avoiding unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as smoking or excessive alcohol consumption, will play a major role in the healing process.
