Dr. Rivano has helped many patients recover from back pain, and a 2014 research study reinforces what we've seen in our practice. The authors conducted a study of 148 people with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation producing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. The majority of patients (79) suffered from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting more than three months. Thirty seven patients had disc herniations for less than four weeks at the start of the investigation.
Each of the patients received chiropractic adjustments based on their individual needs. After two weeks, 70% of the subjects had significant improvements in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial gains. Most importantly, the recovery was retained by patients, with over 80% of patients reporting improvement after one year.
If you live near Florham Park, NJ, you need to know that you don't have to endure disc herniations or any other type of back pain. Dr. Rivano is here for you. To see if we can help you, give our clinic a call at (973) 845-6282 today for an appointment or consultation.
