Now, that’s an age-old question for back pain and leg pain sufferers and doctors alike.

Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is possible conservatively! McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is excited to see this latest back pain treatment study. A group of medical doctors monitored 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 went into one or both legs. Many patients had previously attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment to no avail before this trial. (1) San Jose back pain patients at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions have read this story before…or lived it! We notice that so many of the San Jose back pain patients coming to the office have attempted many other approaches to alleviate their back pain. They just want relief now.  McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is prepared 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) given enough time helped these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to have back surgery. Their MRI studies even show improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced back pain and sciatica relief. (1) Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t affect clinical outcome. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions says this continuously! McMurray Chiropractic Solutions 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 outcome differences. (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 San Jose back pain patients, McMurray Chiropractic Solutions 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 conceivable and should be considered when deciding a potential back surgery if there are no signs for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes! McMurray Chiropractic Solutions helps San Jose back pain and leg pain patients when they desire non-surgical care for their pain.
