Dr. Valente has helped many people in Midtown East, NY recover from back pain, and a recent study confirms what we've seen in our practice: researchers conducted a study of 148 people with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation causing back pain, sciatica, and radiating leg symptoms. Many patients (79) dealt with from chronic lumbar disc herniation lasting longer than three months. Thirty seven patients had disc herniations for less than 4 weeks at the start of the study.

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