One classic study stated
that loss of motor strength because of sciatic nerve damage came
back 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 pick surgery. Nearly all of them got back full strength at 1 year
with it characteristically happening in the
first 3 months though on-going recovery took a year. (3)

St. Francisville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Back Belts Help
St. Francisville back
pain patients fear moving, worried that they may cause
pain. Back belts and braces decrease pain and fear of pain and allow
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 usually used.
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 temporary and for certain conditions, they help!
