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) That sounds quite familiar for Mandeville back pain patients looking for relief at Mandeville Chiropractic! We learn that so many of the Mandeville back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic 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! Mandeville Chiropractic helps Mandeville back pain and leg pain patients when they want non-surgical care for their pain.
