Dr. Keith has helped many people in Rockwall, TX recover from back pain, and a recent study reinforces what we've seen in our office: the authors conducted a study of 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 patients had disc herniations for less than four weeks at the start of the study.

All of the test subjects received chiropractic care based upon the needs of each individual. 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 healing was retained by patients, with over 80% of individuals reporting improvement at the one-year mark.
