According to a recently released summary of the research, there is a 66% chance that WITHOUT SURGERY your disc herniation will resolve.

Researchers looked at all the studies on this between 1990-2015. Different studies reported differing levels of resolution, with one saying up to 82% of people in their group got better with treatment and exercise and rest; no need for surgery!

I certainly get the impression when talking to patients that 2013 has been a long, hard year, so it’s important to use your break wisely.

Welcome to the new look website!
