Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What is the
best solution for back pain and leg pain?
an age-old question for both
doctors and back pain and leg pain sufferers. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation ponders it from time to time and often concludes
that Carrolltown back pain and leg pain sufferers do well
with Carrolltown chiropractic care
. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows
the symptoms to look for that would indicate
necessity for back surgery. Beyond those, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is experienced
in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to deliver the
pain relief our Carrolltown chiropractic patients long for.
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery
Medicine notes that back pain relief is feasible
conservatively! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is excited
to see this latest back pain treatment study. A group of medical
doctors monitored patients with lumbar disc
herniations (most at L4-5 and L5-S1). These patients were 38 years old on
average, 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 extends into one or both legs. Several
patients had already attempted relief with physiotherapy
and other medical treatment to no avail
before this intervention. (1) Carrolltown back pain patients at
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation have read this story before…or lived it! We notice
that so many of the Carrolltown back pain patients coming to the office have attempted many other means
to get rid of their back pain. They just want relief now. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is prepared
to give it.
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) granted enough time eased
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 back
pain and sciatica relief. (1)
Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t
affect clinical outcome. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation says this continuously! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has written
many posts about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation doesn’t matter! Neither
early back surgery nor conservative care for back pain relief showed any
significant difference in outcomes. (2) The average time for patients to recover
from their back pain symptoms due to lumbar disc herniation was 13.6 months
(give or take 5.4 months). (1) Fortunately
for our Carrolltown back pain patients, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation pursues 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 possible and should be considered
when deciding a potential back surgery if there are no indications
for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes!
