Safe, Effective Sciatica Treatment with Chiropractic
Sciatica is one of the most common — and painful — types of pain originating in the spine. It can range from a slight tingling or numbness down your leg to stabbing pain that can leave you sidelined for days.
Nearly 40 percent of people experience the pain of sciatica at some point during their lives. When the nerves that pass through your lower (lumbar) spine become compressed, the resulting inflammation ratchets up the pain.
Compression and the associated inflammation can be caused by many things, including misaligned vertebrae, arthritis, and injuries. Therefore, therapies like chiropractic that focus on managing inflammation and returning spinal structures to their proper position, are vital for recovery.
How Chiropractic Sciatica Treatment Can Help
Chiropractic care is a great way to treat the persistent pain and discomfort of sciatica.
Spinal manipulation is not only gentle and safe — it helps relieve pinched nerves and manage inflammation to restore function.
Some chiropractors offer spinal decompression, an FDA-approved, non-surgical therapy for treatment of pain from:
- Compression fractures
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs
In fact, spinal decompression is a powerful way to normalize the structures of the spine for pain relief. In particular, this cutting-edge therapy is useful for:
- Producing negative intradiscal pressure for pain relief
- Relieving muscle tension
- Mobilizing muscles and joints
- Improving blood flow to nourish and heal vertebrae
Your chiropractor may use other therapies, such as cold-laser therapy, to assist in relieving your sciatica pain.
