Anchorage Sciatica Improvement with Chiropractic

In our Anchorage office, it's common for us to see patients troubled with sciatica, and Mulholland Chiropractic Center, LLC has helped many of these people heal with chiropractic adjustments. What makes chiropractic care so beneficial to those who suffer with sciatica issues? First, it lessens their time of recovery and a Norwegian medical study confirms it.

Research Shows Chiropractic Treatment Helps With Sciatica Pain

In the article, which took place in a Norwegian hospital's orthopedic department, the authors looked at 44 patients who reported 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 researchers found that all but two patients returned to their jobs after receiving chiropractic care, which is a 95% success rate. What's more, the average amount of time that the people 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 could that increase productivity, but it might also diminish costs to businesses and employees from lost work.
