Holtsville Sciatica Recovery with Chiropractic Adjustments

In our Holtsville practice, it's common for us to see people struggling with sciatic nerve pain, and Dr. Cohen has helped many of these people heal with chiropractic therapy. What makes chiropractic adjustments so helpful to those who suffer with sciatica issues? For starters, it lessens their time of recovery and a Norwegian medical study confirms it.

Research Proves Chiropractic Adjustments Helps With Sciatica Pain

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

The authors found that all but two patients returned to work after receiving chiropractic treatment, which is a 95% success rate. What's more, the average amount 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 170,450 days of work 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 work productivity, but it would also decrease costs to businesses and employees from lost work.
