Faster Sciatica Recovery with Chiropractic Care

Las Vegas Sciatica Improvement with Chiropractic Care

In our Las Vegas practice, it isn't uncommon for us to see people struggling with sciatica, and Dr. Forsyth has helped many of these people recover with chiropractic therapy. What makes chiropractic adjustments so helpful to those who suffer with sciatica issues? First, it shortens their recovery time and a Norwegian medical study confirms it.

Research Supports Chiropractic Care Helps With Sciatica Pain

In the article, which took place in a Norwegian hospital's orthopedic division, researchers looked at 44 patients who had 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 found that all but two patients went back to work after receiving chiropractic adjustments, which is a 95% success rate. Moreover, 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 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 would that increase productivity, but it might also reduce costs to businesses and employees from lost work.
