Dr. Pozarnsky has helped many people in Fargo, ND recover from back pain, and a recent research study confirms what we've seen in our clinic: researchers carried out a study of 148 people with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation causing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. The majority of patients (79) suffered 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.
Each of the test subjects received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each person. After fourteen days, 70% of the subjects had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial gains. Even more important, the recovery was retained by patients, with over 80% of patients reporting improvement at the one-year mark.
