Dr. Block has helped many people in Chesapeake, VA recover from back pain, and a recent study reinforces what we've seen in our office: the authors conducted a study of 148 patients with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation causing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. Many patients (79) suffered from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting longer than three months. Thirty seven patients had disc herniations for less than four weeks at the start of the study.

Each of the patients received chiropractic care based upon the needs of each patient. After fourteen days, 70% of the subjects had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial gains. Most importantly, the healing was retained by patients, with over 80% of individuals reporting improvement at the one-year mark.

If you live in Chesapeake, VA, you need to know that you do not have to endure disc herniations or any other type of low back pain. Dr. Block is here for you. To see if we can help you, give our office a call at (757) 436-5428 today for an appointment or consultation.
