Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What’s best for back pain and leg pain?

Now, that’s an age-old question for both doctors and back pain and leg pain sufferers. New Roads Chiropractic Center ponders it from time to time and knows that New Roads back pain and leg pain sufferers find relief with New Roads chiropractic care. New Roads Chiropractic Center knows the symptoms to be alert to that would send a patient to back surgery. Beyond those, New Roads Chiropractic Center is skilled in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to get the New Roads back pain patient’s desired pain relief.
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notes that back pain relief is possible conservatively! New Roads Chiropractic Center is enthusiastic to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers followed patients with lumbar disc herniations (most at L4-5 and L5-S1). These patients were 38 years old on average, 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 went into one or both legs. Many patients had previously attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment without relief before this trial. (1) New Roads back pain patients at New Roads Chiropractic Center have heard this story before…or lived it! We find that so many of the New Roads back pain patients coming to the office have attempted many other means to alleviate their back pain. They just want relief now.  New Roads Chiropractic Center is ready 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) allowed enough time improved these back pain patients’ pain. They didn’t have to undergo back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate improvement as they improved symptomatically and felt back pain and sciatica relief. (1) Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI does not influence clinical outcome. New Roads Chiropractic Center says this a lot! New Roads Chiropractic Center has written many posts about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation does not matter! Neither early back surgery nor conservative care for back pain relief showed any significant outcome differences. (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) Lucky for our New Roads back pain patients, New Roads Chiropractic Center seeks at least 50% relief of pain in the first 30 days and discovers that 91% of our patients get relief in 3 months. (3) The authors advise their colleagues that such relief is conceivable and should be considered in the decision-making process about whether to do back surgery if there are no indications for immediate surgery necessity. (1) Yes! New Roads Chiropractic Center helps New Roads back pain and leg pain patients when they want non-surgical care for their pain.
