Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is viable conservatively! Tarrytown Chiropractic is enthusiastic to see this latest back pain treatment study. A group of medical doctors tracked patients with lumbar disc herniations (most at L4-5 and L5-S1). These patients were 38 years old on average, 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 went into one or both legs. Many patients had already attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment to no avail before this trial. (1) That sounds quite familiar for Tarrytown back pain patients looking for relief at Tarrytown Chiropractic! We learn that so many of the Tarrytown back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have attempted many other tactics to alleviate their back pain.

Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief 

These researchers report that conservative medical care (like bed rest and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants, gels) granted enough time helped these back pain patients’ pain. They didn’t have to undergo back surgery. Their MRI studies even show improvement as they improved symptomatically and felt back pain and sciatica relief. (1) Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t influence clinical outcome. Tarrytown Chiropractic says this all the time! Tarrytown 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 Tarrytown back pain patients, Tarrytown Chiropractic looks for 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 taken into account in the decision-making process about whether to do back surgery if there are no signs for immediate surgical intervention.
