Quicker Sciatica Recovery with Chiropractic Care

Mauldin Sciatica Healing with Chiropractic

In our Mauldin office, it isn't unusual for us to see patients struggling with sciatic nerve pain, and Dr. Izquierdo has helped many of these people recover with chiropractic therapy. What makes chiropractic adjustments so useful to those who suffer with this condition? First, it lessens their recovery time and a Norwegian medical study confirms it.

Research Shows Chiropractic Therapy Helps With Sciatica Pain

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

The authors found that all but two patients returned to their jobs after receiving chiropractic treatment, 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."

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 almost 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 could also lessen costs to businesses and workers from lost work.
