Dr. Jon Paul Fritz has helped many people in Fleming Island, FL recover from back pain, and a 2014 study confirms what we've seen in our office: the authors performed a study of 148 patients 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 longer than three months. Thirty seven subjects had disc herniations for less than four weeks at the start of the study.

All of the test subjects received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each individual. 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 after one year.
