Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is achievable non—surgicall! Vancouver Spine Care Centre is happy 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 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 suffered with low back pain and sciatica that extends into one or both legs. Several patients had previously tried physiotherapy and other medical treatment unsuccessfully before this trial. (1) Vancouver back pain patients at Vancouver Spine Care Centre have heard this story before…or lived it! We notice that so many of the Vancouver back pain patients coming to the office have tried many other tactics to get rid of their back pain. All they want is relief now.  Vancouver Spine Care Centre is poised to give 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 helped these back pain patients’ pain. They didn’t have to go through back surgery. Their MRI studies even show improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced 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. Vancouver Spine Care Centre says this continuously! Vancouver Spine Care Centre has written many posts about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation does not 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 Vancouver back pain patients, Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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.
