Dr. Komeshak has helped many people in O'Fallon, IL recover from back pain, and a 2014 study confirms what we've seen in our practice: the authors performed a study of 148 patients with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation causing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. Many patients (79) dealt with from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting more than three months. Thirty seven subjects had disc herniations for less than a month at the start of the study.
All of the test subjects received chiropractic care based upon the needs of each patient. After two weeks, 70% of the participants had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial improvement. Even better, the progress was retained by patients, with over 80% of patients reporting improvement after one year.
