Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is viable conservatively! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is happy 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 hurt with low back pain and sciatica that went into one or both legs. Several patients had already attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment without relief before this intervention. (1) That sounds quite familiar for Fort Wayne back pain patients pursing relief at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc! We find that so many of the Fort Wayne back pain patients coming to the office have tried many other tactics to free themselves from their back pain. They just want relief now.  Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is prepared to produce 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) granted enough time helped these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to go through back surgery. Their MRI studies even show improvement as they improved symptomatically and felt relief of their back pain and sciatic leg pain. (1) Note that the size of the disc herniation on MRI does not influence clinical outcome. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc says this a lot! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc 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) Fortunately for our Fort Wayne back pain patients, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc seeks 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 share this warning with their colleagues that such relief is conceivable and should be considered in the decision-making process about whether to do back surgery if there are no signs for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc helps Fort Wayne back pain and leg pain patients when they want non-surgical care for their pain.
