Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What is the
best solution for back pain and leg pain?
Now, that is
an age-old question for back pain and leg pain sufferers and doctors alike. Mandeville Chiropractic mulls
it over on occasion and knows
that Mandeville back pain and leg pain sufferers do well
with Mandeville chiropractic care
. Mandeville Chiropractic recognizes
the symptoms to be alert to that would indicate
necessity for back surgery. Beyond those, Mandeville Chiropractic is experienced
in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to produce the
pain relief our Mandeville chiropractic patients want.
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery
Medicine notes that back pain relief is viable
non—surgicall! Mandeville Chiropractic is excited
to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers 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 suffered with low back
pain and sciatica that extends into one or both legs. Many
patients had already attempted relief with physiotherapy
and other medical treatment to no avail
before this intervention. (1) Mandeville back pain patients at
Mandeville Chiropractic have read this story before…or lived it! We learn
that so many of the Mandeville back pain patients coming to the office have attempted many other means
to alleviate their back pain. All they
want is relief now. Mandeville 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 improved
these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to undergo back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate
improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced back
pain and sciatica relief. (1)
Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI does not
affect clinical outcome. Mandeville Chiropractic says this a lot! Mandeville 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 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) Fortunately
for our Mandeville back pain patients, Mandeville 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
caution their colleagues that such relief
is possible and should be considered
in the decision-making process about whether to do back
surgery if there are no signs
for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes!
