One benchmark study related
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)

happens over time irrespective of
treatment (surgery or non-surgery).

latest study did not elect surgery. Just

pain patients fear moving, concerned that they may cause

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 just as effective as a rigid brace to prevent
spinal deformity, improve quality of life, and lessen
back pain. (6) Back belts aren’t necessary forever,
but for temporary and for certain conditions, they help!
