Dr. BenEliyahu has helped many people in Selden, NY recover from back pain, and a 2014 research study reinforces what we've seen in our clinic. Researchers conducted a study of 148 people with MRI-confirmed lumbar disc herniation producing 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 four weeks at the start of the study.

Each of the patients received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each person. After fourteen days, 70% of the participants had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial improvement. Most importantly, the healing was retained by patients, with over 80% of patients reporting improvement after one year.

If you live in Selden, NY, you need to know that you do not have to suffer from disc herniations or any other type of low back pain. Dr. BenEliyahu is here for you. To see if we can help you, give our clinic a call at (631) 736-4414 today for an appointment or consultation.
