Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is viable non—surgicall! Innate Wisdom is enthusiastic 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 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. Several patients had already attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment without relief before this trial. (1) New York City back pain patients at Innate Wisdom have read this story before…or lived it! We learn that so many of the New York City back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have attempted many other ways to alleviate their back pain. All they want is relief now.  Innate Wisdom is poised 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 improved 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 back pain and sciatica relief. (1) Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t affect clinical outcome. Innate Wisdom says this all the time! Innate Wisdom posted many articles 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 recuperate from their back pain symptoms due to lumbar disc herniation was 13.6 months (give or take 5.4 months). (1) Lucky for our New York City back pain patients, Innate Wisdom looks for at least 50% relief of pain in the first 30 days and discovers that 91% of our patients get relief in 3 months. (3) The authors advise their colleagues that such relief is potential and should be considered when deciding a potential back surgery if there are no indications for immediate surgery necessity.
