Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notes that back pain relief is viable non—surgicall! Lakeshore Chiropractic is happy to see this latest back pain treatment study. A group of medical doctors monitored patients with lumbar disc herniations (most at L4-5 and L5-S1). These patients averaged 38 years old, 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 hurt with low back pain and sciatica that went into one or both legs. Several patients had already attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment to no avail before this trial. (1) Two Rivers back pain patients at Lakeshore Chiropractic have heard this story before…or lived it! We find that so many of the Two Rivers back pain patients coming to the office have attempted many other means to alleviate their back pain. All they want is relief now.  Lakeshore Chiropractic is poised 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 eased these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to have back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced 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. Lakeshore Chiropractic says this continuously! Lakeshore Chiropractic has written many posts about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation doesn’t matter! Neither early back surgery nor 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) Lucky for our Two Rivers back pain patients, Lakeshore Chiropractic seeks 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 potential and should be considered in the decision-making process about a potential back surgery if there are no indications for immediate surgery necessity.
