Quicker Sciatica Improvement with Chiropractic Adjustments

Ronkonkoma Sciatica Healing with Chiropractic Adjustments

In our Ronkonkoma practice, it isn't unusual for us to see people struggling with sciatic nerve pain, and Dr. Priolo has helped many of them improve with chiropractic care. What makes chiropractic care so beneficial to those who suffer with this condition? First, it reduces their healing time and a Norwegian research study confirms it.

Research Shows Chiropractic Adjustments Helps With Sciatica Pain

In the report, which took place in a Norwegian hospital's orthopedic division, researchers looked at 44 patients who reported sudden 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 researchers discovered that all but two patients went back to work after receiving chiropractic adjustments, which is a 95% success rate. What's more, the average length of time that the individuals 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 nearly 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 lessen costs to businesses and employees from lost work.
