Now, that is an age-old question for both doctors and back pain and leg pain sufferers. Soft Health and Healing Clinic mulls it over from time to time and often concludes that Brooks back pain and leg pain sufferers do well with Brooks chiropractic care. Soft Health and Healing Clinic recognizes the symptoms to be alert to that would send a patient to back surgery. Beyond those, Soft Health and Healing Clinic is skilled in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to get the Brooks back pain patient’s desired pain relief.
 
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is viable conservatively! Soft Health and Healing Clinic is happy to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers 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. Several patients had already attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment to no avail before this trial. (1) Brooks back pain patients at Soft Health and Healing Clinic have read this story before…or lived it! We notice that so many of the Brooks back pain patients coming to the office have tried many other approaches to get rid of their back pain. They just want relief now.  Soft Health and Healing Clinic is prepared 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) given enough time eased these back pain patients’ pain. They did not 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) Note that the size of the disc herniation on MRI does not affect clinical outcome. Soft Health and Healing Clinic says this a lot! Soft Health and Healing Clinic posted many articles 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) Lucky for our Brooks back pain patients, Soft Health and Healing Clinic pursues 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 conceivable and should be taken into account in the decision-making process about whether to do back surgery if there are no indications for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes! Soft Health and Healing Clinic helps Brooks back pain and leg pain patients when they desire non-surgical care for their pain.
