Dr. Blake has helped many people in Harrisburg, PA recover from back pain, and a recent research study reinforces what we've seen in our practice: the authors carried out a study of 148 patients with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation producing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. Many patients (79) suffered from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting more than three months. Thirty seven subjects had disc herniations for less than 4 weeks at the start of the investigation.

Each of the patients received chiropractic care based upon the needs of each individual. After two weeks, 70% of the subjects had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial gains. Even more important, the improvement was retained by patients, with over 80% of patients reporting improvement at the one-year mark.
