Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What’s the best solution for back pain and leg pain?

Now, that’s an age-old question for back pain and leg pain sufferers and doctors alike. Watertown Wellness Center ponders it from time to time and often concludes that Watertown back pain and leg pain sufferers do well with Watertown chiropractic care. Watertown Wellness Center knows the symptoms to be alert to that would indicate necessity for back surgery. Beyond those, Watertown Wellness Center is experienced in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to deliver the Watertown back pain patient’s desired pain relief.
 
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is achievable conservatively! Watertown Wellness Center is excited to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers followed patients with lumbar disc herniations (most at L4-5 and L5-S1). These patients averaged 38 years old, just the age when that really bad back pain episode seems to come on according to spinal researchers. These patients hurt with low back pain and sciatica that went into one or both legs. Several patients had already attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment without relief before this intervention. (1) That sounds quite familiar for Watertown back pain patients pursing relief at Watertown Wellness Center! We learn that so many of the Watertown back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have tried many other approaches to get rid of their back pain. All they want is relief now.  Watertown Wellness Center is ready to give it.

Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief 

These researchers report that conservative medical care (like bed rest and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants, gels) granted enough time helped these back pain patients’ pain. They didn’t have to have back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced relief of their back pain and sciatic leg pain. (1) Note that the size of the disc herniation on MRI does not affect clinical outcome. Watertown Wellness Center says this all the time! Watertown Wellness 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 Watertown back pain patients, Watertown Wellness 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 caution their colleagues that such relief is potential and should be considered when deciding a potential back surgery if there are no indications for immediate surgery necessity. (1) Yes! Watertown Wellness Center helps Watertown back pain and leg pain patients when they desire non-surgical care for their pain.
