Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is possible non—surgicall! Satterwhite Chiropractic is enthusiastic to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers followed 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 suffered with low back pain and sciatica that extends into one or both legs. Many patients had already tried physiotherapy and other medical treatment to no avail before this trial. (1) That sounds quite familiar for Oxford back pain patients pursing relief at Satterwhite Chiropractic! We learn that so many of the Oxford back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have tried many other ways to get rid of their back pain. They just want relief now.  Satterwhite Chiropractic is ready 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 show 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. Satterwhite Chiropractic says this continuously! Satterwhite Chiropractic has written many posts about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation doesn’t 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 Oxford back pain patients, Satterwhite Chiropractic 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! Satterwhite Chiropractic helps Oxford back pain and leg pain patients when they want non-surgical care for their pain.
