Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is possible conservatively! Palmer Chiropractic Center is enthusiastic 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 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 tried physiotherapy and other medical treatment without relief before this intervention. (1) Lynchburg back pain patients at Palmer Chiropractic Center have heard this story before…or lived it! We learn that so many of the Lynchburg back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have attempted many other ways to alleviate their back pain.

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 eased these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to go through back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced relief of their back pain and sciatic leg pain. (1) Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t affect clinical outcome. Palmer Chiropractic Center says this all the time! Palmer Chiropractic Center posted many articles about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation doesn’t matter! Not early back surgery or conservative care for back pain relief showed any significant difference in outcomes. (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 Lynchburg back pain patients, Palmer Chiropractic Center seeks at least 50% relief of pain in the first 30 days and finds that 91% of our patients get relief in 3 months. (3) The authors share this warning with their colleagues that such relief is potential and should be considered in the decision-making process about whether to do back surgery if there are no indications for immediate surgery necessity.
