GIVE IT TIME…AND West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC!
Leg pain (lumbosacral radiculopathy
or sciatica) and loss of motor strength naturally concern
West Palm Beach back pain
patients. “When will it come back?” is a usual question. Keep in
mind that studies show that treatment
outcomes are quite comparable for
surgical and non-surgical care of disc herniation
patients with leg
One classic study related
that loss of motor strength because of 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 recent article agrees: Improvement
returns over time regardless of
treatment (surgery or non-surgery).
The majority of patients in this
latest study did not elect surgery. Just
about all of them recovered full strength at 1 year
with it typically happening in the
first 3 months though on-going recovery took a year. (3)
Moses Chiropractic urges you to not hold
back. Ask Moses Chiropractic the concerning questions. We’ll present the research-documented
facts for you to consider.
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 developed foot drop and decreased
muscle strength due to a disc herniation with leg pain
sciatica/radiculopathy. His chiropractic care utilizing the Cox® Technic System
allowed him to return not just back to walking but also to playing
West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Back Belts Help
West Palm Beach back
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 back pain patients who suffer with spinal stenosis,
back belts enhanced their walking distance. (5) And for acute
compression fractures, a back brace is typically implemented.
A soft brace was equally effective as a rigid brace to avoid
spinal deformity, improve quality of life, and reduce
back pain. (6) Back belts aren’t necessary forever,
but for temporary and for certain conditions, they help!
