Faster Sciatica Healing with Chiropractic

Charlotte, NC Sciatica Recovery with Chiropractic Care

In our Charlotte, NC practice, it's common for us to see people suffering with sciatica pain, and ChiroWerx has helped many of these people heal with chiropractic adjustments. What makes chiropractic therapy so helpful to those who suffer with sciatica issues? For starters, it lessens their time of recovery and a Norwegian research study confirms it.

Research Shows Chiropractic Care Helps With Sciatica Pain

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

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

Considering 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 work productivity, but it might also reduce costs to businesses and workers from lost work.
