GIVE IT TIME…AND Paramus CHIROPRACTIC!
Leg pain (lumbosacral radiculopathy
or sciatica) and loss of motor strength obviously bother
Paramus back pain
patients. ”When will I
get back to ‘normal’?” is a typical question. Keep in
mind that studies show that treatment
outcomes are quite alike for
surgical and non-surgical care of disc herniation
patients with leg
One benchmark study related
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 regardless of
treatment (surgery or non-surgery).
The majority of patients in this
new study did not choose surgery. Almost all of them recovered full strength at 1 year
with it typically happening in the
first 3 months though on-going recovery lasted a year. (3)
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 found himself foot drop and decreased
muscle strength due to a disc herniation with leg pain
sciatica/radiculopathy. His chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System
helped him return not just back to walking but also to playing
Paramus CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Back Belts Help
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 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 implemented.
A soft brace was equally effective as a rigid brace to prevent
spinal deformity, enhance quality of life, and reduce
back pain. (6) Back belts aren’t needed forever,
but for short-term and for certain conditions, they help!
