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

GIVE IT TIME…AND Pensacola CHIROPRACTIC!
 
Leg pain (lumbosacral radiculopathy or sciatica) and loss of motor strength naturally worry Pensacola back pain patients. “When will it come back?” is a standard question. Keep in mind that studies show that treatment results are quite alike for surgical and non-surgical care of disc herniation patients with sciatic radiculopathy. (1) One benchmark 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 concurs: Improvement occurs over time irrespective of treatment (surgery or non-surgery). The majority of patients in this latest study did not choose surgery. Just about 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center says “Don’t hold back!” Ask Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center the concerning questions. We will 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 assisting an athletic, healthy patient who found himself foot drop and decreased muscle strength as a result of a disc herniation with leg pain sciatica/radiculopathy. His chiropractic care utilizing the Cox® Technic System allowed him to resume walking and playing tennis!

 Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees value in recommending back belts to back pain sufferers.

Pensacola CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Back Belts Help

Pensacola back pain patients fear moving, concerned that they may trigger pain. Back belts and braces reduce pain and fear of pain and allow a return to normal 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 usually used. 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 are not needed forever, but for temporary and for certain conditions, they are beneficial!
