Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notes that back pain relief is achievable conservatively! Apple Country Chiropractic is happy to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers tracked 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 suffered with low back pain and sciatica that extends into one or both legs. Several patients had previously attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment without relief before this intervention. (1) Williamson back pain patients at Apple Country Chiropractic have heard this story before…or lived it! We find that so many of the Williamson back pain patients coming to the office have tried many other ways to free themselves from their back pain. All they want is relief now.  Apple Country Chiropractic is poised to give 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) given enough time improved these back pain patients’ pain. They did not 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. Apple Country Chiropractic says this all the time! Apple Country Chiropractic 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 recuperate from their back pain symptoms due to lumbar disc herniation was 13.6 months (give or take 5.4 months). (1) Fortunately for our Williamson back pain patients, Apple Country Chiropractic seeks 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 potential and should be considered in the decision-making process about a potential back surgery if there are no signs for immediate surgery necessity. (1) Yes! Apple Country Chiropractic helps Williamson back pain and leg pain patients when they want non-surgical care for their pain.
