Dr. Gomez has helped many people in Charlotte, NC recover from back pain, and a recent study confirms what we've seen in our practice: the authors conducted a study of 148 people with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation producing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. The majority of patients (79) dealt with from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting more than three months. Thirty seven subjects had disc herniations for less than four weeks at the start of the investigation.

Each of the patients received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each individual. After fourteen days, 70% of the participants had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial improvement. Even better, the progress was retained by patients, with over 80% of patients reporting improvement at the one-year mark.
