Dr. Benko has helped many people in Schererville, IN recover from back pain, and a 2014 research study confirms what we've seen in our office: researchers conducted a study of 148 patients 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 more than three months. Thirty seven patients had disc herniations for less than 4 weeks at the start of the investigation.

All of the patients received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each patient. After two weeks, 70% of the participants had significant improvements in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial gains. Even more important, the progress was retained by patients, with over 80% of individuals reporting improvement after one year.
