March 2019 Healthy News: Severna Park Chiropractic Care Helps Motor Strength Come Back

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

Leg pain (lumbosacral radiculopathy or sciatica) and loss of motor strength obviously upset Severna Park back pain patients. “When will it come back?” is a usual question. Keep in mind that research finds that treatment outcomes are very alike for surgical and non-surgical care of disc herniation patients with leg radiculopathy. (1) One classic study stated that loss of motor strength due to 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 recent article agrees: Improvement comes over time irrespective of treatment (surgery or non-surgery). Most patients in this new study did not elect surgery. Nearly all of them got back full strength at 1 year with it typically happening in the first 3 months while on-going recovery took a year. (3) Back And Neck Care Center says “Do not hold back!” Ask Back And Neck Care Center the concerning questions. We will present the research-documented facts for you to consider.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Howard Rosenberg on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about assisting an athletic, healthy patient who developed foot drop and reduced muscle strength as a result of a disc herniation with leg pain sciatica/radiculopathy. His chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System allowed him to resume walking and playing tennis!

 Back And Neck Care Center sees benefit in recommending back belts to back pain sufferers.


Severna Park back pain patients fear moving, worried that they may trigger pain. Back belts and braces reduce pain and fear of pain and allow a return to normal activities of life. (4) For spinal stenosis patients with back pain, back belts improved walking distance. (5) And for acute compression fractures, a back brace is typically used. A soft brace was equally effective as a rigid brace to avoid spinal deformity, enhance quality of life, and lessen back pain. (6) Back belts are not necessary forever, but for temporary and for certain conditions, they are beneficial!
