Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is feasible conservatively! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is enthusiastic 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 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. Several patients had already attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment unsuccessfully before this trial. (1) Auburn back pain patients at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. have read this story before…or lived it! We notice that so many of the Auburn back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have tried many other ways to get rid of their back pain. All they want is relief now.  Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is prepared 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) granted enough time helped these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to have back surgery. Their MRI studies even show improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced relief of their back pain and sciatic leg pain. (1) Note that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t influence clinical outcome. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. says this all the time! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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 recuperate from their back pain symptoms due to lumbar disc herniation was 13.6 months (give or take 5.4 months).
