Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notices that back pain relief is achievable non—surgicall! Vancouver Disc Centers is happy 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 suffered with low back pain and sciatica that went into one or both legs. Several patients had previously tried physiotherapy and other medical treatment without relief before this intervention. (1) Vancouver back pain patients at Vancouver Disc Centers have heard this story before…or lived it! We learn that so many of the Vancouver back pain patients coming to the office have tried many other approaches to free themselves from their back pain. They just want relief now.  Vancouver Disc Centers is ready to give 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) allowed enough time helped these back pain patients’ pain. They did not have to go through back surgery. Their MRI studies even show improvement as they improved symptomatically and experienced back pain and sciatica relief. (1) Note that the size of the disc herniation on MRI doesn’t influence clinical outcome. Vancouver Disc Centers says this continuously! Vancouver Disc Centers has written many posts 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 recover 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 Disc Centers seeks at least 50% relief of pain in the first 30 days and finds that 91% of our patients get relief in 3 months.
