Dr. Holland has helped many people in St. Louis, MO recover from back pain, and a recent study reinforces what we've seen in our practice: the authors conducted a study of 148 patients with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation producing back pain, sciatica, pinched nerve, and radiating leg symptoms. The majority of patients (79) dealt with from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting longer than three months. Thirty seven subjects had disc herniations for less than four weeks at the start of the study.
Each of the test subjects received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each person. After fourteen days, 70% of the participants had significant improvements 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 at the one-year mark.
