Quicker Sciatica Healing with Chiropractic Therapy

Stacy Sciatica Recovery with Chiropractic

In our Stacy office, it's common for us to see patients struggling with sciatica pain, and Dr. Ulvin has helped many of these people recover with chiropractic therapy. What makes chiropractic adjustments so beneficial to those who suffer with sciatica issues? First, it reduces their healing time and a Norwegian research study confirms it.

Research Proves Chiropractic Therapy Helps With Sciatica Pain

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

The authors found that all but two patients went back to work after receiving chiropractic care, which is a 95% success rate. Furthermore, the average amount of time that the people 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 about 112,500 work days that could potentially be recovered each and every year solely by receiving chiropractic care. Not only could that increase productivity, but it might also diminish costs to businesses and workers from lost work.
