Faster Sciatica Recovery with Chiropractic

West New York Sciatica Improvement with Chiropractic Care

In our West New York practice, it isn't uncommon for us to see people troubled with sciatica pain, and Dr. Marsh has helped many of these people recover with chiropractic treatment. What makes chiropractic treatment so useful to those who suffer with sciatica pain? First off, it reduces their time of recovery and a Norwegian medical study confirms it.

Research Supports Chiropractic Treatment Helps With Sciatica Pain

In the study, which took place in a Norwegian hospital's orthopedic department, the authors looked at 44 patients who reported abrupt low back pain that was diagnosed as acute sciatic nerve pain. The participants were all treated by a chiropractor, with the average follow-up being two years after treatment.

The researchers discovered that all but two patients went back to their jobs after receiving chiropractic care, which is a 95% success rate. What's more, the average amount of time that the patients spent off work "was reduced by two thirds as compared with that associated with conventional medical treatment."

Considering that the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that over 170,000 workdays were missed in 2013 due to employees dealing with back or spine-related issues, that is nearly 112,500 work days that could potentially be recovered each and every year solely by receiving chiropractic care. Not only could that increase work productivity, but it could also diminish costs to businesses and employees from lost work.
