Chiropractic Care of Postlaminectomy Syndrome: A Report of 2 Cases

Two Hong Kong cases where chiropractic techniques appear to have been successful in alleviating postlaminectomy syndrome (PLS). PLS is a condition characterized by persistent back pain or leg pain after spine surgeries. Nerves can get damaged or inflamed due to various (preexisting, intra- or postoperative) conditions, resulting in continued low back pain. These cases are notable because the precise cause of this condition remains unclear and, currently, effective strategies for patients with this painful syndrome have not been established.
