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

 Fort Wayne chiropractic assists in returning motor strength loss due to a disc herniation and sciatica return over time.

Leg pain (sciatic radiculopathy) and loss of motor strength naturally worry Fort Wayne back pain patients. “When will it come back?” is a usual question. Keep in mind that studies show that treatment outcomes are quite alike for surgical and non-surgical care of disc herniation patients with sciatic radiculopathy. (1) One classic study stated that loss of motor strength due to 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 returns over time irrespective of treatment (surgery or non-surgery). The majority of patients in this new study did not choose surgery. Almost all of them regained full strength at 1 year with it characteristically occurring in the first 3 months while on-going recovery took a year. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic says “Do not hold back!” Ask Aaron Chiropractic Clinic the hard questions. We will share with you the research-based answers for you to consider.

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


Fort Wayne back pain patients fear moving, concerned 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 just as effective as a rigid brace to prevent spinal deformity, enhance quality of life, and lessen back pain. (6) Back belts aren’t necessary forever, but for short-term and for certain conditions, they are beneficial!
