Understanding Sciatica

Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve becomes irritated or compressed. As a result, you may experience pain that originates in the lower back and radiates to the buttocks and legs. Not only that, these symptoms can often also be accompanied by numbness, tingling, and weakness.

Causes of Sciatica

There are various factors that can lead to the development of sciatica, such as the following:

  • Herniates discs
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Bone spurs
  • Auto accident injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy

Chiropractic Treatments for Sciatica

Before providing treatment, our chiropractor will perform a full examination to determine what is causing your pain and where the nerve is being pinched. Afterward, we’ll develop a customized care plan for your specific needs.

Your treatment plan may include chiropractic adjustments, which help properly align the spine and take pressure off of the sciatic nerve. The adjustments may also be paired with massage therapy. This therapy helps reduce inflammation, improve blood flow, and speed up the healing process.

Our chiropractor might also recommend spinal decompression for sciatica relief. Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine and helps any herniated discs affecting the sciatic nerve retract. Additionally, we can teach you therapeutic exercises that can make your back muscles stronger.
