Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What is the best solution for back pain and leg pain?

Now, there is an age-old question for both doctors and back pain and leg pain sufferers. Chiropractic Associates mulls it over from time to time and often concludes that Preston back pain and leg pain sufferers find relief with Preston chiropractic care. Chiropractic Associates knows the symptoms to be alert to that would indicate necessity for back surgery. Beyond those, Chiropractic Associates is experienced in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to produce the pain relief our Preston chiropractic patients long for.
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notes that back pain relief is achievable conservatively! Chiropractic Associates is excited to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers 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 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 to no avail before this trial. (1) That sounds quite familiar for Preston back pain patients looking for relief at Chiropractic Associates! We learn that so many of the Preston back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have attempted many other approaches to alleviate their back pain. They just want relief now.  Chiropractic Associates 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) allowed enough time eased 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 back pain and sciatica relief. (1) Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t influence clinical outcome. Chiropractic Associates says this a lot! Chiropractic Associates has written many posts 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). (1) Lucky for our Preston back pain patients, Chiropractic Associates 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 share this warning with their colleagues that such relief is potential and should be taken into account when deciding whether to do back surgery if there are no signs for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes! Chiropractic Associates helps Preston back pain and leg pain patients when they desire non-surgical care for their pain. Chiropractic Associates offers evidence-based chiropractic care for back pain relief with Cox Technic.
