Faster Sciatica Healing with Chiropractic Care

Faster Sciatica HealingThe sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body and runs from the pelvis to the feet. Sciatica indicates pain resulting from irritation of this nerve and can be triggered by a variety of things. The resulting discomfort varies from mild to extreme pain. The pain caused by sciatica can last from a few days to months.

If you are experiencing pain, starting from your low back which travels down your legs, you may be suffering from sciatica. At North Road Chiropractic, we offer effective treatment solutions to enable you to deal with this condition.

In our Oakleigh office, it is common for us to see patients struggling with sciatica. At North Road Chiropractic, we have helped a huge number of individuals with chiropractic. Chiropractic care is a sought-after option, affirmed by a Norwegian medical study, which indicates that chiropractic care has immensely helped patients suffering from sciatica, quickly.

In a study conducted in a Norwegian hospital’s orthopaedic department, researchers looked into 44 patients who were suffering from acute sciatica. The patients were treated by a chiropractor and the normal follow-up was done two years after treatment.

The outcome of the study demonstrated a positive result with a success rate of 95%. All the patients except two were able to return to work after receiving the treatment. The average time spent away from work by these patients reduced considerably as compared with patients who received conventional medical treatment.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that in 2013, about 170,450 days of work were lost due to employees suffering from back or spine-related pain. This means that around 112,500 workdays could possibly be recovered every single year with chiropractic care. This, in turn, can result in increasing the efficiency and profitability of businesses. It can also reduce the loss incurred due to lost working days.
