Sciatica is characterized multiple pain symptoms that typically originate in the lower back or buttock area, often traveling into one or both legs. The pain associated with sciatica can vary in intensity and frequency, with most patients feeling unable to complete daily tasks as the pain intensifies. Sciatica is caused by sciatic nerve compression. Some of the common medical conditions associated with sciatica include:
The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and runs from the base of the spine all the way down the body into the leg. With multiple roots that extend from the spine, this important nerve is very vulnerable to compression that is caused by common injuries or spinal misalignment.
Often, auto accidents or sports injuries can cause the spine to shift out of alignment, causing your spinal discs to push-up against the root of your sciatic nerve. This results in a wide range of symptoms including pain, numbness, tingling, and loss of sensation in the lower extremities, muscle weakness and more.
By utilizing both manual and instrument-based spinal adjustments, our experienced chiropractor can work to slowly relieve your pain and other symptoms caused by sciatica. These gentle yet targeted spinal adjustments work to realign the spine, relieving added pressure from the sciatic nerve. In addition to providing much-needed pain relief for sciatica, spinal manipulation also works to reduce inflammation, promote faster healing and helps your body to heal much more quickly from common injuries. In fact, this non-invasive and prescription drug-free treatment method is so safe and effective that our chiropractor is happy to work with patients of all ages, even expectant mothers.
In addition to regular spinal adjustments, our chiropractic care team may recommend several other holistic treatment methods to help increase the effectiveness of your chiropractic care. Some of the other common treatments used to relieve sciatica pain include:
Once we have made a clear diagnosis, we will work closely with you to determine the best course of treatment for your sciatica pain based off of your health and lifestyle needs. As with any diagnosis, we will also take the time to periodically reassess your condition and make changes to your treatment plan as needed.
