Dr. Sweeney has helped many people in Nashville, TN recover from back pain, and a recent study reinforces what we've seen in our practice: researchers 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) dealt with from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting more than three months. Thirty seven subjects had disc herniations for less than four weeks at the start of the investigation.
Each of the patients received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each individual. After two weeks, 70% of the subjects had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial gains. Most importantly, the healing was retained by patients, with over 80% of individuals reporting improvement after one year.
