Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What’s best for back pain and leg pain?
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 do well
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 produce the
pain relief our New Roads chiropractic patients want.
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) That sounds quite familiar for
New Roads back pain patients seeking care at New Roads Chiropractic Center! 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!
