Herniated Discs

A report shows that 90 percent of patients with herniated discs improve with chiropractic care. If you live in Loveland, OH and have been diagnosed with a herniated disc or chronic back pain, call Dr. Kauffman today at (513) 444-4529 for a consultation.

Dr. Kauffman has helped many people recover from back pain and leg pain related to disc bulges and herniations. A 2014 research study reinforces what we've seen in our clinic: the authors performed a study of 148 patients with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation producing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. Many patients (79) dealt with 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 investigation.

Each of the patients received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each person. After two weeks, 70% of the participants had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial improvement. Most importantly, the progress was retained by patients, with over 80% of patients reporting improvement at the one-year mark.

If you live in Loveland, OH, you need to know that you don't have to suffer with disc herniations or any other type of low back pain. Dr. Kauffman is here for you. To see if we can help you, give our office a call at (513) 444-4529 today for an appointment or consultation.
