Quicker Sciatica Improvement with Chiropractic

Mt Sterling Sciatica Improvement with Chiropractic

In our Mt Sterling office, it isn't unusual for us to see people troubled with sciatica, and Linton Spine & Joint Chiropractic Center has helped many of these people improve with chiropractic care. What makes chiropractic treatment so useful to those who suffer with sciatica pain? First off, it reduces their recovery time and a Norwegian research study confirms it.

Research Shows Chiropractic Treatment Helps With Sciatica Pain

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

The researchers found that all but two patients went back to work after receiving chiropractic care, which is a 95% success rate. Furthermore, the average period of time that the patients spent off work "was reduced by two thirds as compared with that associated with conventional medical treatment."

Given the fact that the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 170,450 days of work were missed in 2013 due to employees dealing with back or spine-related issues, that is almost 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 would also decrease costs to businesses and workers from lost work.
