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. All they
want is relief now. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is ready
to produce it.
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. (2) The average time for patients to recuperate
from their back pain symptoms due to lumbar disc herniation was 13.6 months
(give or take 5.4 months). (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. (3) The authors
share this warning with their colleagues that such relief
is possible and should be considered
in the decision-making process about a potential back surgery if there are no indications
for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes!
