Quicker Sciatica Recovery with Chiropractic Treatment

Burton Sciatica Recovery with Chiropractic Adjustments

In our Burton office, it isn't unusual for us to see people suffering with sciatica, and Dr. Elganainy has helped many of these people improve with chiropractic care. What makes chiropractic adjustments so helpful to those who suffer with this condition? First off, it shortens their recovery time and a Norwegian research study confirms it.

Research Shows Chiropractic Treatment Helps With Sciatica Pain

In the study, 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 sciatica. 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 their jobs after receiving chiropractic treatment, which is a 95% success rate. Furthermore, the average period of time that the people 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 lost 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 would that increase work productivity, but it could also lessen costs to businesses and employees from lost work.
