Faster Sciatica Improvement with Chiropractic

Texarkana, Atlanta Sciatica Recovery with Chiropractic Care

In our Texarkana, Atlanta office, it isn't uncommon for us to see patients suffering with sciatica pain, and Dr. Swanson has helped many of them improve with chiropractic therapy. What makes chiropractic adjustments so useful to those who suffer with sciatica issues? For starters, it lessens their recovery time and a Norwegian medical study confirms it.

Research Shows Chiropractic Care Helps With Sciatica Pain

In the article, which took place in a Norwegian hospital's orthopedic department, the authors looked at 44 patients who reported abrupt low back pain that was diagnosed as acute sciatic nerve pain. 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 period 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 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 might also reduce costs to businesses and employees from lost work.
