Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices 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 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 previously tried physiotherapy and other medical treatment unsuccessfully before this trial. (1) That sounds quite familiar for Plymouth back pain patients looking for relief at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology! 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.
