GIVE IT TIME…AND Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC!
Leg pain (sciatic radiculopathy) and loss of motor strength naturally worry
Lynchburg back pain
patients. “When will it come back?” is a usual question. Keep in
mind that studies show that treatment
results are very alike for
surgical and non-surgical care of disc herniation
patients with sciatic
One model study reported
that loss of motor strength due to sciatic nerve damage came
back over 3 years with 10% in 6 months, 30% at 1 year, 50% at 2 years and
75% at 3 years. (2)
A brand-new article concurs: Improvement
comes over time irrespective of
treatment (surgery or non-surgery).
The majority of patients in this
latest study did not choose surgery. Just
about all of them got back full strength at 1 year
with it characteristically occurring in the
first 3 months while on-going recovery took a year. (3)
Palmer Chiropractic Center urges you to not hold
back. Ask Palmer Chiropractic Center the tough questions. We
will share with you the research-based answers for you to ponder.
Listen to this PODCAST
with Dr. Howard Rosenberg on The
Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about helping
an athletic, healthy patient who found himself foot drop and reduced
muscle strength due to a disc herniation with leg pain
sciatica/radiculopathy. His chiropractic care utilizing the Cox® Technic System
helped him resume walking and playing tennis!
Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Back Belts Help
pain patients fear moving, concerned that they may trigger
pain. Back belts and braces reduce pain and fear of pain and foster
a return to usual activities of life. (4) For spinal stenosis
patients with back pain,
back belts enhanced their walking distance. (5) And for acute
compression fractures, a back brace is usually implemented.
A soft brace was just as effective as a rigid brace to avoid
spinal deformity, enhance quality of life, and reduce
back pain. (6) Back belts aren’t necessary forever,
but for short-term and for certain conditions, they help!
