Dr. Liveriadis has helped many people in Oakleigh, VIC recover from back pain, and a 2014 research study reinforces what we've seen in our office: the authors performed 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 a month at the start of the investigation.

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

If you're looking for chiropractors in Oakleigh, you need to know that you don't have to endure disc herniations or any other type of low back pain. Dr. Liveriadis is here for you. To see if we can help you, give our clinic a call at (03) 9579 2699 today for an appointment or consultation.
