Dr. Green has helped many people in Estero, FL recover from sciatica. A recent research study confirms what we've seen in our practice. The study included 148 patients with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation causing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. Many patients (79) suffered from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting more than three months. Thirty seven subjects had disc herniation for less than four weeks at the start of the investigation.
Each of patient received chiropractic adjustments based upon 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 healing was sustained by patients, with over 80% reporting improvement at the one-year mark.
