March 2019 Healthy News: Murfreesboro Chiropractic Care Helps Motor Strength Come Back

 Murfreesboro chiropractic helps return motor strength loss due to a disc herniation and sciatica return over time.

Leg pain (lumbosacral radiculopathy or sciatica) and loss of motor strength naturally worry Murfreesboro back pain patients. ”When will I get back to ‘normal’?” is a standard question. Keep in mind that research finds that treatment results are very comparable for surgical and non-surgical care of disc herniation patients with leg radiculopathy. (1) One model study reported that loss of motor strength because of sciatic nerve damage returned 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 agrees: Improvement occurs over time regardless of treatment (surgery or non-surgery). The majority of patients in this new study did not elect surgery. Nearly all of them got back full strength at 1 year with it typically happening in the first 3 months while on-going recovery lasted a year. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic urges you to not hold back. Ask Most Chiropractic Clinic the concerning questions. We will present the research-documented facts 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 decreased muscle strength due to a disc herniation with leg pain sciatica/radiculopathy. His chiropractic care utilizing the Cox® Technic System helped him return not just back to walking but also to playing tennis!

 Most Chiropractic Clinic sees value in recommending back belts to back pain sufferers.

Murfreesboro CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Back Belts Help

Murfreesboro 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 improved walking distance. (5) And for acute compression fractures, a back brace is typically implemented. A soft brace was just as effective as a rigid brace to avoid spinal deformity, improve quality of life, and reduce back pain. (6) Back belts are not needed forever, but for temporary and for certain conditions, they are beneficial!
