Dr. Russell has helped many people in Henderson, NV recover from back pain, and a recent study reinforces what we've seen in our office: researchers carried out a study of 148 people with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation causing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. The majority of patients (79) suffered from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting longer than three months. Thirty seven patients had disc herniations for less than a month at the start of the study.

Each of the patients received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each patient. After fourteen days, 70% of the participants had significant improvements in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial improvement. Even more important, the recovery was retained by patients, with over 80% of patients reporting improvement at the one-year mark.
