A natural solution to help manage pain and inflammation.
Sciatica affects as many as 40 percent of adults at some point in their lifetime. By understanding what sciatica is and the pain that comes along with it, you can learn how to manage it. Chiropractic care is incredibly helpful when it comes to dealing with sciatica pain.
Sciatica refers to back pain caused by a problem with the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is a large nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. With sciatica, the pain doesn’t just occur in the lower back. It can spread to the hip, buttocks, leg and foot.
Some side effects of sciatica include a mild ache to a sharp, burning sensation down the legs, numbness, tingling or muscle weakness in the affected leg or foot. These can all cause discomfort and complications in every day life.
Chiropractic Care for Sciatica
Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve sciatica pain. Many people turn to chiropractic care for sciatica management because it’s proven to be safe and non-invasive. It’s also a healthy and non-addictive alternative to prescription medicine or over-the-counter medication.
If you’re suffering from sciatica pain, chiropractors are a practical and easy solution. Chiropractic adjustments will aim to realign the spine and take the pressure off of the sciatic nerve for pain relief in a gentle, non-invasive way. Once the pressure is off of the nerve, the body can begin to heal itself from within. These adjustments also increase joint mobility.
Some of the health benefits chiropractic care and adjustments can provide those with sciatica include: reduced pain and discomfort, decreased inflammation, improved range of motion and increased activity and lifestyle.
The biggest difference patients have noticed with chiropractic treatment and their pain was decreased inflammation, which caused less pain and discomfort. Many patients were able to see improvement in symptoms and even flexibility after chiropractic adjustment.
