Dr. Skon has helped many people in Saint Paul, MN recover from back pain, and a recent study confirms what we've seen in our office: the authors carried out a study of 148 people 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 longer than three months. Thirty seven subjects had disc herniations for less than 4 weeks at the start of the investigation.

All of the test subjects received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each patient. After two weeks, 70% of the subjects had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial improvement. Even better, the improvement was retained by patients, with over 80% of individuals reporting improvement at the one-year mark.
