There are lots of New Roads back pain relief plan options! New research shares some fascinating findings. Let’s consider opioids and Tylenol for back pain relief. There is no difference in low back pain relief and radicular extremity pain (leg pain sciatica) relief between using Tylenol and taking powerful opioid drugs. (1) Melatonin defends the intervertebral disc’s nucleus pulposus cells from apoptosis (cell death) and blocked disc degeneration. (2) Melatonin accomplishes this. There’s hope for disc degeneration’s reversal. And what about this study? Spontaneous resorption of a lumbar herniated disc confirmed on MRI was observed in all of 9 patients who experienced back pain and sciatic leg pain, refused back surgery, and demonstrated no motor deficit! It took a mean of about 8.7 months. Clinical relief with conservative treatment came about in a mean of just 5.7 weeks. (3) That is rousing news! The discs resorbed.
