Relief Possible Without Back Surgery
Medicine notes that back pain relief is viable
conservatively! Minster Chiropractic Center is happy
to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers followed patients with lumbar disc
herniations (most at L4-5 and L5-S1). These patients averaged 38 years old, just the age when that really bad back
pain episode seems to come on according to spinal researchers. These patients suffered with low back
pain and sciatica that went into one or both legs. Several
patients had previously tried physiotherapy
and other medical treatment to no avail
before this trial. (1) Minster back pain patients at
Minster Chiropractic Center have read this story before…or lived it! We notice
that so many of the Minster back pain patients seeking care at
this chiropractic office have tried many other tactics
to free themselves from their back pain. They just want relief now. Minster Chiropractic Center is prepared
to give it.
Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief
These researchers share that conservative
medical care (like bed rest and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle
relaxants, gels) granted enough time eased
these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to undergo back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate
improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced back
pain and sciatica relief. (1)
Note that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t
affect clinical outcome. Minster Chiropractic Center says this continuously! Minster Chiropractic Center posted many articles about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation doesn’t 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) Lucky
for our Minster back pain patients, Minster Chiropractic Center pursues 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 conceivable and should be considered
when deciding a potential back surgery if there are no indications
for immediate surgery necessity. (1) Yes!
