Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notes that back pain relief is achievable non—surgicall! Hutter Chiropractic Office is happy to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers followed patients with lumbar disc herniations (most at L4-5 and L5-S1). These patients averaged 38 years old, 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 trial. (1) That sounds quite familiar for Groton back pain patients pursing relief at Hutter Chiropractic Office! We notice that so many of the Groton back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have attempted many other means to get rid of their back pain. They just want relief now.  Hutter Chiropractic Office is poised 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) given enough time eased these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to go through back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced relief of their back pain and sciatic leg pain. (1) Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t influence clinical outcome. Hutter Chiropractic Office says this a lot! Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 difference in outcomes. (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 Groton back pain patients, Hutter Chiropractic Office looks for 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 potential 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! Hutter Chiropractic Office helps Groton back pain and leg pain patients when they desire non-surgical care for their pain.
