The cost of chiropractic care for the treatment of lumbar intervertebral disc herniation patients is just 2% of total money spent on back pain. A trial of conservative non-operative care is recommended prior to surgery for patients with lumbar disc herniation. (1) Approximately 42.7% of workers who first saw a surgeon had surgery in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor first. (2)


First-time disc surgeries reduced by approximately two thirds for patients treated in a multidisciplinary facility. (3) When cases of patients recommended for a fusion back surgery were evaluated by a multidisciplinary committee, non-surgical care was recommended for only 58%. The fusion surgical approach recommended  for 28% of the cases was modified. (4) Another multidisciplinary overview resulted in changed approaches|was changed to care for back pain without lumbar spinal fusion. Exercise, psychological therapy, rehabilitation, spinal manipulation, massage and acupuncture for chronic low back pain remains to be championed in the spine research. Pain reduction is greater than functional improvement. (5) Watertown back pain patients are wanting pain reduction, so this is wonderful!
