Dr. Palmer has helped many people in Depew, NY recover from back pain, and a 2014 study confirms what we've seen in our office: the authors performed a study of 148 people with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation producing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. Many patients (79) suffered from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting longer than three months. Thirty seven patients had disc herniations for less than a month at the start of the study.
Each of the test subjects received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each individual. After fourteen days, 70% of the subjects had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial gains. Even more important, the improvement was retained by patients, with over 80% of individuals reporting improvement after one year.
If you live in Depew, NY, you need to know that you don't have to suffer with disc herniations or any other type of back pain. Dr. Palmer is here for you. To see if we can help you, give our clinic a call at (716) 241-2798 today for an appointment or consultation.
