Adjustments or Diskectomy for Sciatica? by The Evidence Based Chiropractor

Should Patients Use Chiropractic or Surgery for Sciatica?

 

Sciatica secondary to lumbar disc herniation is a condition which is seen everyday in chiropractic offices around the globe.  Did you know that chiropractic adjustments/manipulation has shown to be just as effective at treating these patients as surgical intervention?

These researchers concluded that, "60% of patients with sciatica who had failed other medical management benefitted from spinal spinal manipulation to the SAME DEGREE as if they underwent surgical intervention."

Something not only to think about, but also to talk about!
