Report shows that 90 percent of people with herniated discs improve with chiropractic adjustments.
Dr. Dahlager has helped many people in Westfield, Cicero, Lapel, Fishers and Carmel, IN recover from back pain, and a recent study reinforces what we've seen in our office: researchers performed a study of 148 patients with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation causing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. The majority of patients (79) dealt with from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting more than three months. Thirty seven subjects had disc herniations for less than 4 weeks at the start of the investigation.
Each of the patients received chiropractic care 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 gains. Even better, the healing was retained by patients, with over 80% of individuals reporting improvement after one year.
