Singapore Sciatica Recovery with Chiropractic Care

In our Singapore practice, it's common for us to see patients struggling with sciatica, and Dr. Stakes has helped many of these people heal with chiropractic adjustments. What makes chiropractic treatment so useful to those who suffer with sciatica discomfort? For starters, it shortens their time of recovery and a Norwegian research study confirms it.

Research Proves Chiropractic Adjustments Helps With Sciatica Pain

In the article, which took place in a Norwegian hospital's orthopedic division, the authors looked at 44 patients who reported sudden low back pain that was identified as acute sciatic nerve pain. The individuals were all treated by a chiropractor, with the average follow-up being two years after treatment.

The researchers found that all but two patients went back to their jobs after receiving chiropractic adjustments, which is a 95% success rate. What's more, the average amount 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 almost 112,500 work days that could potentially be recovered each and every year solely by receiving chiropractic care. Not only could that increase productivity, but it might also decrease costs to businesses and employees from lost work.
