Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is possible non—surgicall! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is excited 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 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 previously attempted relief with physiotherapy and other medical treatment without relief before this trial.

We find that so many of the Baton Rouge back pain patients coming to the office have attempted many other approaches to alleviate their back pain.

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 have 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 doesn’t influence clinical outcome. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation says this continuously! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 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 Baton Rouge back pain patients, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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.
