Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is possible non—surgicall! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is happy to see this latest back pain treatment study. A group of medical doctors tracked patients with lumbar disc herniations (most at L4-5 and L5-S1). These patients were 38 years old on average, just the age that spinal research reports as average for back pain sufferers to have a bad case of back pain that’s been building for years. These patients suffered with low back pain and sciatica that extends into one or both legs. Several patients had already tried physiotherapy and other medical treatment to no avail before this trial. (1) Manahawkin back pain patients at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center have read this story before…or lived it! We find that so many of the Manahawkin back pain patients coming to the office have attempted many other tactics to free themselves from their back pain.

Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief 

These researchers found that conservative medical care (like bed rest and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants, gels) granted enough time improved these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to go through back surgery. Their MRI studies even show improvement as they improved symptomatically and felt relief of their back pain and sciatic leg pain. (1) Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI does not affect clinical outcome. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center says this all the time! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center posted many articles about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation does not matter! Not early back surgery or conservative care for back pain relief showed any significant outcome differences.

(1) Fortunately for our Manahawkin back pain patients, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center looks for at least 50% relief of pain in the first 30 days and finds that 91% of our patients get relief in 3 months.
