Quicker Sciatica Recovery with Chiropractic Adjustments

Buffalo Sciatica Improvement with Chiropractic Adjustments

In our Buffalo office, it isn't unusual for us to see patients troubled with sciatica pain, and Buffalo Family Chiropractic Wellness, P. C. has helped many of these people improve with chiropractic treatment. What makes chiropractic care so beneficial to those who suffer with sciatica? First, it shortens their healing time and a Norwegian research study confirms it.

Research Supports Chiropractic Care Helps With Sciatica Pain

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

The authors discovered that all but two patients went back to work after receiving chiropractic care, which is a 95% success rate. Furthermore, the average period of time that the individuals 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 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 would also reduce costs to businesses and employees from lost work.
