Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notes that back pain relief is feasible non—surgicall! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is excited to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers followed 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 suffered with low back pain and sciatica that extends into one or both legs. Many patients had previously attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment unsuccessfully before this intervention. (1) That sounds quite familiar for Colorado Springs back pain patients looking for relief at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR! We notice that so many of the Colorado Springs back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have tried many other means to get rid of their back pain. They just want relief now.  The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is poised to produce it.

Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief 

These researchers share 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 didn’t have to go through back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate 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. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR says this continuously! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR posted many articles about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation doesn’t matter! Not early back surgery or conservative care for back pain relief showed any significant outcome differences. (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) Lucky for our Colorado Springs back pain patients, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 possible and should be considered when deciding a potential back surgery if there are no indications for immediate surgical intervention.
