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

GIVE IT TIME…AND Paramus CHIROPRACTIC!
 
Leg pain (sciatic radiculopathy) 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 radiculopathy. (1) 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 back. Ask Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center the concerning questions. We will share with you the research-based answers 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 using the Cox® Technic System helped him return not just back to walking but also to playing tennis!

 Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center sees benefit in recommending back belts to back pain sufferers.

Paramus CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Back Belts Help

Paramus 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 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!
