Dr. Helton has helped many people in Portland (Woodstock, Sellwood) recover from back pain, and a 2014 research study confirms what we've seen in our practice: researchers conducted a study of 148 patients 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 four weeks at the start of the study.

Each of the patients received chiropractic adjustments based upon the needs of each patient. After two weeks, 70% of the participants had significant progress in pain and disability; and at three months, 90% had substantial improvement. Even better, the healing was retained by patients, with over 80% of individuals reporting improvement after one year.

If you live in Portland (Woodstock, Sellwood), you need to know that you don't have to suffer with disc herniations or any other type of low back pain. Dr. Helton is here for you. To see if we can help you, give our office a call at (503) 771-1974 today for an appointment or consultation.
