Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What’s best for back pain and leg pain?
Now, that is
an age-old question for back pain and leg pain sufferers and doctors alike. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology mulls
it over from time to time and knows
that Plymouth back pain and leg pain sufferers do well
with Plymouth chiropractic care
. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology recognizes
the symptoms to be alert to that would indicate
necessity for back surgery. Beyond those, Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is skilled
in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to deliver the
pain relief our Plymouth chiropractic patients want.
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery
Medicine notes that back pain relief is feasible
non—surgicall! Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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 averaged 38 years old, just the age that spinal research
reports as average for back pain sufferers to have a bad case of back pain that’s
been building for years. These patients hurt with low back
pain and sciatica that extends into one or both legs. Several
patients had previously tried physiotherapy
and other medical treatment unsuccessfully
before this trial. (1) Plymouth back pain patients at
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology have read this story before…or lived it! We learn
that so many of the Plymouth back pain patients coming to the office have attempted many other ways
to alleviate their back pain. They just want relief now. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is prepared
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) allowed enough time improved
these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to go
through back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate
improvement as they improved symptomatically and felt back
pain and sciatica relief. (1)
Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI does not
affect clinical outcome. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology says this a lot! Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology posted many articles about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation does
not 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 Plymouth back pain patients, Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology looks
for 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
advise their colleagues that such relief
is conceivable and should be considered
when deciding whether to do back
surgery if there are no indications
for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes!
