Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What is best for back pain and leg pain?
an age-old question for back pain and leg pain sufferers and doctors alike. Moses Chiropractic ponders it from time to time and knows
that West Palm Beach back pain and leg pain sufferers find relief
with West Palm Beach chiropractic care
. Moses Chiropractic recognizes
the symptoms to look for that would send a patient to back surgery. Beyond those, Moses Chiropractic is experienced
in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to produce the
pain relief our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients long for.
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery
Medicine notices that back pain relief is achievable
conservatively! Moses Chiropractic is happy
to see this latest back pain treatment study. A group of medical
doctors 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 extends into one or both legs. Many
patients had already tried physiotherapy
and other medical treatment to no avail
before this trial. (1) West Palm Beach back pain patients at
Moses Chiropractic have heard this story before…or lived it! We notice
that so many of the West Palm Beach back pain patients coming to the office have tried many other approaches
to alleviate their back pain. They just want relief now. Moses Chiropractic is ready
to produce it.
Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief
These researchers found that conservative
medical care (like bed rest and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle
relaxants, gels) granted enough time improved
these back pain patients’ pain. They didn’t have to undergo back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate
improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced back
pain and sciatica relief. (1)
Note that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t
influence clinical outcome. Moses Chiropractic says this continuously! Moses Chiropractic has written
many posts about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation does
not 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 West Palm Beach back pain patients, Moses Chiropractic pursues at least 50% relief of pain in the first 30 days and discovers
that 91% of our patients get relief in 3 months. (3) The authors
advise their colleagues that such relief
is conceivable and should be considered
in the decision-making process about a potential back surgery if there are no indications
for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes!
