Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What’s the
best solution for back pain and leg pain?
an age-old question for both
doctors and back pain and leg pain sufferers. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic mulls
it over from time to time and often concludes
that Fernandina Beach back pain and leg pain sufferers find relief
with Fernandina Beach chiropractic care
. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic recognizes
the symptoms to look for that would send a patient to back surgery. Beyond those, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is skilled
in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to deliver the
pain relief our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients long for.
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery
Medicine notices that back pain relief is possible
non—surgicall! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is happy
to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers monitored 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 suffered with low back
pain and sciatica that went into one or both legs. Many
patients had already attempted relief with physiotherapy
and other medical treatment unsuccessfully
before this intervention. (1) Fernandina Beach back pain patients at
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic have read this story before…or lived it! We notice
that so many of the Fernandina Beach back pain patients seeking care at
this chiropractic office have attempted many other tactics
to alleviate their back pain. They just want relief now. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is poised
to produce it.
Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief
These researchers share that conservative
medical care (like bed rest and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle
relaxants, gels) given enough time helped
these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to go
through back surgery. Their MRI studies even show
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
influence clinical outcome. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic says this all
the time! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic 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) Fortunately
for our Fernandina Beach back pain patients, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic 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
when deciding whether to do back
surgery if there are no indications
for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes!
