GIVE IT TIME…AND Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC!
Leg pain (sciatic radiculopathy) and loss of motor strength obviously upset
Carrolltown back pain
patients. ”When will I
get back to ‘normal’?” is a usual question. Keep in
mind that published papers show that treatment
outcomes are very alike for
surgical and non-surgical care of disc herniation
patients with leg
One model 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 brand-new article concurs: Improvement
happens over time regardless of
treatment (surgery or non-surgery).
Most patients in this
latest study did not elect surgery. Almost all of them got back full strength at 1 year
with it characteristically happening in the
first 3 months while on-going recovery lasted a year. (3)
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation urges you to not hold

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 reduced
muscle strength due to a disc herniation with leg pain
sciatica/radiculopathy. His chiropractic care utilizing the Cox® Technic System
allowed him to resume walking and playing tennis!
Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Back Belts Help
pain patients fear moving, worried that they may cause
pain. Back belts and braces decrease pain and fear of pain and foster
a return to normal activities of life. (4) For back pain patients who suffer with spinal stenosis,
back belts improved 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 prevent
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!
