Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What’s the
best solution for back pain and leg pain?
an age-old question for both
doctors and back pain and leg pain sufferers. Hollstrom & Associates Inc ponders it on occasion and knows
that Largo back pain and leg pain sufferers find relief
with Largo chiropractic care
. Hollstrom & Associates Inc recognizes
the symptoms to look for that would indicate
necessity for back surgery. Beyond those, Hollstrom & Associates Inc is skilled
in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to produce the
pain relief our Largo chiropractic patients want.
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 attempted 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)
Notice 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!
