Relief Possible Without Back Surgery
Medicine notices that back pain relief is feasible
non—surgicall! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is excited
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 went into one or both legs. Many
patients had previously tried physiotherapy
and other medical treatment without relief
before this intervention. (1) Fort Wayne back pain patients at
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic have heard this story before…or lived it! We notice
that so many of the Fort Wayne back pain patients seeking care at
this chiropractic office have attempted many other approaches
to get rid of their back pain. They just want relief now. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is prepared
to give it.
Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief
These researchers report that conservative
medical care (like bed rest and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle
relaxants, gels) given enough time improved
these back pain patients’ pain. They didn’t have to have 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 doesn’t
influence clinical outcome. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic says this continuously! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic has written
many posts 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 difference in outcomes. (2) The average time for patients to recover
from their back pain symptoms due to lumbar disc herniation was 13.6 months
(give or take 5.4 months). (1) Fortunately
for our Fort Wayne back pain patients, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic 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 conceivable and should be taken into account
when deciding whether to do back
surgery if there are no indications
for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes!
