What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a condition in which the sciatic nerve becomes compressed. This sciatic nerve runs down the lower back and to the outer side of each leg. Once it becomes compressed, a person might also experience numbness, tingling, a sensation of pins and needles, and also weakness in the lower extremities, such as the legs and feet.
Sciatica can happen suddenly, and is usually the result of twisting or bending wrong. Even the slightest sciatic pain can have devastating consequences, making it difficult for people to complete regular activities such as sitting, standing, twisting, or bending. Sciatica also has a tendency to reoccur and occur more frequently as we age. Therefore, it's important to get treatment from a chiropractor as soon as possible.
How Does a Chiropractor Treat Sciatic Nerve Pain?
Our chiropractor can help you find relief from pain by providing the very best chiropractic care possible. This chiropractic care can be done through various methods, such as massaging the area to reduce inflammation from muscles that could be compressing the sciatic nerve.
Manual adjustments of the spine can help realign the spine and improve posture, spinal health, and take compression off of the sciatic nerve. Finally, spinal decompression can also help alleviate pain by gently stretching the spine, releasing tension from the sciatic nerve. Our chiropractor will determine which of these treatments will be useful to you, and how long you will need treatment for.
