Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is possible non—surgicall! Hollstrom & Associates Inc is excited 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 averaged 38 years old, 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 went into one or both legs. Several patients had already tried physiotherapy and other medical treatment without relief before this trial. (1) That sounds quite familiar for Largo back pain patients pursing relief at Hollstrom & Associates Inc! We notice that so many of the Largo back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have tried many other tactics to alleviate their back pain. All they want is relief now.  Hollstrom & Associates Inc is ready to give it.

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) allowed enough time eased these back pain patients’ pain. They didn’t have to have back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced back pain and sciatica relief. (1) Note that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t influence clinical outcome. Hollstrom & Associates Inc says this a lot! Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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 outcome differences. (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) Fortunately for our Largo back pain patients, Hollstrom & Associates Inc pursues at least 50% relief of pain in the first 30 days and finds that 91% of our patients get relief in 3 months. (3) The authors caution their colleagues that such relief is possible and should be taken into account in the decision-making process about a potential back surgery if there are no indications for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes! Hollstrom & Associates Inc helps Largo back pain and leg pain patients when they want non-surgical care for their pain.
