Dr. Slater has helped many people in St. Paul, MN recover from back pain, and a recent research study confirms what we've seen in our clinic: researchers carried out a study of 148 people with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation causing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. The majority of patients (79) suffered 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.
All of the test subjects received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each person. After two weeks, 70% of the participants had significant improvements in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial improvement. Most importantly, the progress was retained by patients, with over 80% of individuals reporting improvement at the one-year mark.
