Study shows 90% of low back disc herniations showed significant improvement with chiropractic spinal manipulation. 88% still show improvement after a year.
Chiropractic is shown again and again to be effective for disc herniations and back pain, before going for a steroid shot or living on pain medication, and especially before going for surgery, consider trying chiropractic.
Give us a call and we will gladly do a full examination and let you know if we believe you would benefit from chiropractic care.

(2014) Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics,
Significant improvement for all outcomes at all time points was reported (P < .0001). 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.” directly from article at http://www.jmptonline.org/article/S0161-4754(14)00034-7/abstract
