Faster Sciatica Healing with Chiropractic Care

Henderson, NV sciatica treatment and chiropracticIn our Henderson, NV practice, it's common for us to see patients troubled with sciatic nerve pain, and Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has helped many of these people improve with chiropractic. What makes chiropractic so beneficial to those who suffer with sciatica? First, it shortens their healing time and a Norwegian research study confirms it.

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Sciatica Pain

In the article, which took place in a Norwegian hospital's orthopedic division, the authors looked at 44 patients who reported abrupt 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 researchers found that all but two patients returned to their jobs after receiving chiropractic adjustments, 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 over 170,000 workdays were lost 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 would also reduce costs to businesses and workers from lost work.
