Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What’s the
best solution for back pain and leg pain?
Now, that is
an age-old question for back pain and leg pain sufferers and doctors alike. Chiropractic Care ponders it from time to time and often concludes
that Chicago back pain and leg pain sufferers find relief
with Chicago chiropractic care
. Chiropractic Care knows
the symptoms to be alert to that would indicate
necessity for back surgery. Beyond those, Chiropractic Care is skilled
in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to deliver the
pain relief our Chicago chiropractic patients long for.
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery
Medicine notices that back pain relief is feasible
conservatively! Chiropractic Care 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 averaged 38 years old, just the age when that really bad back
pain episode seems to come on according to spinal researchers. These patients hurt with low back
pain and sciatica that extends into one or both legs. Several
patients had already attempted relief with physiotherapy
and other medical treatment without relief
before this intervention. (1) That sounds quite familiar for
Chicago back pain patients seeking care at Chiropractic Care! We learn
that so many of the Chicago back pain patients coming to the office have attempted many other approaches
to free themselves from their back pain. All they
want is relief now. Chiropractic Care is poised
to produce 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) given enough time helped
these back pain patients’ pain. They didn’t have to undergo 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
influence clinical outcome. Chiropractic Care says this a lot! Chiropractic Care 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 difference in outcomes. (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 Chicago back pain patients, Chiropractic Care 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 taken into account
when deciding a potential back surgery if there are no indications
for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes!
