There are lots of Manchester back pain relief plan options! Recent research discloses some interesting findings. Let’s look at opioids and Tylenol for back pain relief. There’s no difference in low back pain relief and radicular extremity pain (leg pain sciatica) relief between using Tylenol and using powerful opioid drugs. (1) Melatonin guards the intervertebral disc’s nucleus pulposus cells from apoptosis (cell death) and stopped disc degeneration. (2) Melatonin does this. There is hope for disc degeneration’s reversal. And what about this study? Spontaneous resorption of a lumbar herniated disc seen on MRI was seen in all of 9 patients who had back pain and sciatic leg pain, refused back surgery, and had no motor deficit! It took a mean of about 8.7 months. Clinical relief with conservative treatment took a mean of just 5.7 weeks. (3) That is exciting news! The discs resorbed.
