Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What’s best for back pain and leg pain?
Now, that is
an age-old question for both
doctors and back pain and leg pain sufferers. Wilson Family Chiropractic ponders it from time to time and knows
that Millville back pain and leg pain sufferers do well
with Millville chiropractic care
. Wilson Family Chiropractic recognizes
the symptoms to look for that would send a patient to back surgery. Beyond those, Wilson Family Chiropractic is experienced
in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to deliver the
pain relief our Millville chiropractic patients want.
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery
Medicine notes that back pain relief is viable
conservatively! Wilson Family Chiropractic is excited
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 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. Many
patients had previously tried physiotherapy
and other medical treatment to no avail
before this intervention. (1) Millville back pain patients at
Wilson Family Chiropractic have read this story before…or lived it! We notice
that so many of the Millville back pain patients seeking care at
this chiropractic office have attempted many other means
to free themselves from their back pain. All they
want is relief now. Wilson Family Chiropractic is prepared
to give it.
Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief
These researchers found that conservative
medical care (like bed rest and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle
relaxants, gels) allowed 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 back
pain and sciatica relief. (1)
Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI does not
affect clinical outcome. Wilson Family Chiropractic says this a lot! Wilson Family Chiropractic has written
many posts about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation does
not matter! Not early back surgery or conservative care for back pain relief showed any
significant outcome differences. (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) Lucky
for our Millville back pain patients, Wilson Family Chiropractic 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
share this warning with their colleagues that such relief
is possible and should be taken into account
when deciding whether to do back
surgery if there are no indications
for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes!
