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) Watertown back pain patients at
Watertown Wellness Center have read this story before…or lived it! 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!
