McHenry Non-Surgical Care Delivers Back Pain Reliefand MRI Images Show it

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

Now, there is an age-old question for both doctors and back pain and leg pain sufferers. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic mulls it over on occasion and often concludes that McHenry back pain and leg pain sufferers do well with McHenry chiropractic care. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows the symptoms to look for that would indicate necessity for back surgery. Beyond those, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is experienced in the conservative care of back pain and leg pain to get the McHenry back pain patient’s desired pain relief.
Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is feasible conservatively! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is happy to see this latest back pain treatment study. A group of medical doctors followed patients with lumbar disc herniations (most at L4-5 and L5-S1). These patients were 38 years old on average, 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 extends into one or both legs. Several patients had previously attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment to no avail before this intervention. (1) That sounds quite familiar for McHenry back pain patients pursing relief at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic! We find that so many of the McHenry back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have attempted many other ways to alleviate their back pain. They just want relief now.  OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is ready to produce it.

Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief 

These researchers found 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 undergo back surgery. Their MRI studies even demonstrate improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced back pain and sciatica relief. (1) Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI does not influence clinical outcome. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic says this all the time! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic 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 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 McHenry back pain patients, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic pursues 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 caution their colleagues that such relief is possible and should be considered in the decision-making process about a potential back surgery if there are no signs for immediate surgical intervention. (1) Yes! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic helps McHenry back pain and leg pain patients when they want non-surgical care for their pain.
