Considerations of Lynchburg Back Surgery for a Herniated Disc

The frustration of Lynchburg back pain: It hurts. It messes up life. It doesn’t always react positively to the best-intended care programs: back surgery or conservative. That’s why Palmer Chiropractic Center exists. Palmer Chiropractic Center is here to help Lynchburg back pain and neck pain patients discover an alternative that functions for their Lynchburg back pain relief goal.


There are many Lynchburg back pain relief plan options! New research shares some fascinating findings. Let’s look at opioids and Tylenol for back pain relief. There is no difference in low back pain relief and radicular extremity pain (leg pain sciatica) relief between taking Tylenol and using powerful opioid drugs. (1) Melatonin defends the intervertebral disc’s nucleus pulposus cells from apoptosis (cell death) and blocked disc degeneration. (2) Melatonin does this. There is hope for disc degeneration’s reversal. And what about this study? Spontaneous resorption of a lumbar herniated disc seen on MRI was observed in all of 9 patients who had back pain and sciatic leg pain, declined back surgery, and had no motor deficit! It required a mean of about 8.7 months. Clinical relief with conservative treatment came about in a mean of just 5.7 weeks. (3) That is exciting news! The discs resorbed.


What compels a patient to choose Lynchburg back surgery over other options? The patient’s ideas about the treatment may be based on insufficient information. The time it takes a patient to make a decision may be sped up because of scheduling when the patient is one who needs time to really think about the options. The patient’s not wanting to disturb the system, disappoint the healthcare provider by refusing recommended treatment. The patient’s past experiences with treatment options as undertaken by relatives or friends and the resultant good or bad outcomes. Choosing back surgery or a non-surgical treatment plan for low back and/or leg pain due to a disc herniation is a big, complex decision. (4) It is a decision-making process Palmer Chiropractic Center understands well, that Palmer Chiropractic Center has helped many Lynchburg chiropractic patients to make.
