Your sciatic nerve is located underneath the spine behind your pelvis, but pain can start in your lower back and radiate down the back of your leg. If you’re experiencing this constant pain, or intense muscle spasms in one buttock and leg, you’re not alone. There are more than 3 million cases of sciatica per year in the United States alone.
While this kind of pain can be caused by pressure on the nerve, there could be more sinister causes to your leg pain that need to be acknowledged to ensure that it isn’t a routine occurrence.
Chiropractic treatment for sciatica aims to address the root cause of your pain by determining whether it’s caused by spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, or a slipped disc. Through physical therapy and sciatica chiropractic methods that relieve the pressure, we can ensure that your pain is controlled. As chiropractors for sciatica, we employ the following methods to reduce your sciatica pain:
By reducing inflammation, we can instantly reduce the pain you’re experiencing and therefore get a better idea of where the pain is originating and why.
If a misaligned vertebrae putting pressure on your sciatic nerve is the cause of your
pain, sciatica chiropractic treatment can reposition your these vertebra to their proper position.
If a slipped disc is the cause of your sciatica pain,
seeking a chiropractor for your herniated disc is your best course of action. Focusing on a complete diagnosis through X-Rays or CT scans means that we can better address the root cause of your pain, and deliver the best treatment.
