Back surgery. Non-surgical care. What is the best solution for back pain and leg pain?

Now, that is an age-old question for both doctors and back pain and leg pain sufferers. Malverne Health & Wellness ponders it from time to time and knows that Malverne back pain and leg pain sufferers do well with Malverne chiropractic care. Malverne Health & Wellness recognizes the symptoms to look for that would send a patient to back surgery. Beyond those, Malverne Health & Wellness is skilled in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to deliver the pain relief our Malverne chiropractic patients are seeking.
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notes that back pain relief is feasible conservatively! Malverne Health & Wellness is excited 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 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 previously attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment without relief before this intervention. (1) That sounds quite familiar for Malverne back pain patients seeking care at Malverne Health & Wellness! We notice that so many of the Malverne back pain patients coming to the office have attempted many other means to free themselves from their back pain. They just want relief now.  Malverne Health & Wellness is poised to give it.

Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief 

These researchers share 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 didn’t have to have back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate improvement as they improved symptomatically and felt relief of their back pain and sciatic leg pain. (1) Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI does not affect clinical outcome. Malverne Health & Wellness says this all the time! Malverne Health & Wellness has written many posts about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation doesn’t matter! Not early back surgery or 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 Malverne back pain patients, Malverne Health & Wellness 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 advise their colleagues that such relief is conceivable and should be taken into account when deciding a potential back surgery if there are no signs for immediate surgery necessity. (1) Yes! Malverne Health & Wellness helps Malverne back pain and leg pain patients when they desire non-surgical care for their pain.
