BACK PAIN OPTIONS

There are many St. Francisville back pain relief plan options! Recent research reveals some fascinating findings. Let us look at opioids and Tylenol for back pain relief. There is no difference in low back pain relief and radicular extremity pain (leg pain sciatica) relief between taking Tylenol and using powerful opioid drugs. (1) Melatonin guards the intervertebral disc’s nucleus pulposus cells from apoptosis (cell death) and halted disc degeneration. (2) Melatonin accomplishes this. There’s hope for disc degeneration’s reversal. And what about this report? Spontaneous resorption of a lumbar herniated disc seen on MRI was seen in all of 9 patients who had back pain and sciatic leg pain, declined back surgery, and demonstrated no motor deficit! It took a mean of about 8.7 months. Clinical relief with conservative treatment took a mean of just 5.7 weeks. (3) That is exciting news! The discs resorbed.
