Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is possible non—surgicall! Layden 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 when that really bad back pain episode seems to come on according to spinal researchers. These patients hurt 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 without relief before this intervention. (1) That sounds quite familiar for Plainville back pain patients pursing relief at Layden Chiropractic! We find that so many of the Plainville back pain patients coming to the office have tried many other ways to get rid of their back pain. They just want relief now.  Layden Chiropractic 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) given enough time eased these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to undergo back surgery. Their MRI studies even show improvement as they improved symptomatically and felt back pain and sciatica relief. (1) Note that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t influence clinical outcome. Layden Chiropractic says this all the time! Layden Chiropractic 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 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 Plainville back pain patients, Layden Chiropractic pursues 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 caution their colleagues that such relief is conceivable and should be considered in the decision-making process about a potential back surgery if there are no indications for immediate surgery necessity. (1) Yes! Layden Chiropractic helps Plainville back pain and leg pain patients when they want non-surgical care for their pain.
