Understanding Sciatica and its Causes

Sciatica refers to pain that originates in the lower back and radiates down one or both legs. It often worsens with prolonged periods of sitting or standing. Pregnant women, individuals with diabetes, and those who are obese are commonly affected by sciatica.

Various factors can contribute to the development of sciatica. Our comprehensive approach, involving X-rays and computerized nerve scans, allows us to identify the underlying cause of the sciatic symptoms. In many cases, sciatica is triggered by subluxation (spinal misalignment) that exerts pressure on the nerve, leading to pain in the buttock or leg. Disc herniation or bulging can also contribute to nerve compression. Accurate diagnosis through proper examination is crucial for effective treatment.

Typical symptoms may include:

  • Hip pain
  • Tingling or burning sensation down the leg
  • Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg or foot
  • Persistent pain affecting one side of the buttocks
  • Shooting pain that makes standing up uncomfortable

Our Approach: Chiropractic Care for Sciatica Relief

At our practice, we utilize spinal adjustments to remove nerve interference and alleviate sciatic pain. These adjustments help restore proper alignment and mobility to the spine, relieving pressure on the affected nerve. Additionally, we incorporate physical therapy modalities and spinal exercises to enhance the healing process and promote long-term improvement.

While most patients experience some level of relief after their first adjustment, the duration of treatment varies depending on individual circumstances. Our primary goal is to alleviate pain as quickly as possible, allowing patients to regain control of their lives. We empower our patients with knowledge of proper bending, twisting, and lifting techniques to prevent future issues.

Patient Success Story: Jenny’s Journey to Relief

Jenny, a 33-year-old pregnant woman, sought our care during her third trimester. She was experiencing lower back and right-sided sciatic pain, which is common during pregnancy due to increased pressure on the spine and discs. After her initial adjustment, Jenny felt immediate relief. We continued providing proactive care throughout her pregnancy. What’s remarkable is that both Jenny and her baby now continue to receive wellness chiropractic care at our office.

Our Natural Approach: Chiropractic Care for Sciatica Relief

Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to effectively relieve sciatic pain. Through a consultation and comprehensive examination, we assess joint motion in the lower back and determine the most appropriate course of care.

If we believe that our chiropractic care can benefit you, we will guide you through the treatment process. However, if we determine that another healthcare practitioner can better address your specific sciatica needs, we will provide a suitable referral.
