A new study from the peer-reviewed journal, JMPT, was just released showing that a large percentage of acute and importantly chronic lumbar disc herniation patients treated with chiropractic spinal manipulation reported clinically relevant improvement. Significant improvement for all outcomes at all time points was reported. At 3 months, 90.5% of patients were “improved” with 88.0% “improved” at 1 year. Although acute patients improved faster by 3 months, 81.8% of chronic patients reported “improvement” with 89.2% “improved” at 1 year. There were no adverse events reported. These are amazing numbers of improvement! If you have a lumbar disc herniation, acute or chronic, you should schedule with a chiropractor today to get chiropractic adjustments.
