Dr. Baker has helped many people in Parma Heights, OH recover from back pain, and a recent study reinforces what we've seen in our clinic. Researchers conducted a study of 148 people with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation causing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. Many patients (79) dealt with from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting longer than three months. Thirty seven subjects had disc herniation for less than a month at the start of the investigation.
Each of the patients received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each individual. After two weeks, 70% of the subjects had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial improvement. Most importantly, the healing was retained by patients, with over 80% of individuals reporting improvement after one year.
