Dr. Schulz has helped many people in Mandeville, LA recover from back pain, and a 2014 study reinforces what we've seen in our practice: the authors performed a study of 148 people with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation causing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. The majority of patients (79) dealt with 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 investigation.

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