Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notes that back pain relief is viable conservatively! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is enthusiastic to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers followed patients with lumbar disc herniations (most at L4-5 and L5-S1). These patients averaged 38 years old, just the age that spinal research reports as average for back pain sufferers to have a bad case of back pain that’s been building for years. These patients hurt with low back pain and sciatica that went into one or both legs. Many patients had previously tried physiotherapy and other medical treatment unsuccessfully before this intervention. (1) That sounds quite familiar for La Grande back pain patients looking for relief at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC! We notice that so many of the La Grande back pain patients seeking care at this chiropractic office have attempted many other ways to alleviate their back pain. All they want is relief now.  Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is prepared to produce it.

Give Some Time to Treatment and Relief 

These researchers found that conservative medical care (like bed rest and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants, gels) granted enough time helped these back pain patients’ pain. They didn’t have to go through back surgery. Their MRI studies even show improvement as they improved symptomatically and felt back pain and sciatica relief. (1) Notice that the size of the disc herniation on MRI does not affect clinical outcome. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC says this all the time! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC has written many posts about this very topic: the size of the disc herniation doesn’t matter!

(1) Lucky for our La Grande back pain patients, Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC seeks at least 50% relief of pain in the first 30 days and finds that 91% of our patients get relief in 3 months.
