Quicker Sciatica Improvement with Chiropractic Adjustments

State College Sciatica Healing with Chiropractic Care

In our State College office, it isn't uncommon for us to see people troubled with sciatic nerve pain, and Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes has helped many of them heal with chiropractic care. What makes chiropractic treatment so useful to those who suffer with sciatica? For starters, it lessens their recovery time and a Norwegian research study confirms it.

Research Proves Chiropractic Adjustments 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 identified as acute sciatic nerve pain. The participants were all treated by a chiropractor, with the mean follow-up being two years after treatment.

The researchers found that all but two patients returned to their jobs after receiving chiropractic treatment, which is a 95% success rate. What's more, the average length 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 almost 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 might also reduce costs to businesses and employees from lost work.
