What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is nerve pain and dysfunction caused by compression of the sciatic nerve. This large nerve runs down the back, hips, and lower legs. Those who suffer from sciatica find it difficult to find pain relief options that align with their natural health goals. Mainstream medicine often takes the route of simply prescribing pain killers to deal with these kinds of pain issues. This is not a sustainable solution, however. Over time, the human body will build up a resistance to pain killers. Most pain killers also have harsh side effects as well as addictive properties.
What Are the Symptoms of Sciatica?
There is more to sciatica than just pain. Compression of the sciatic nerve can cause a host of different symptoms, including:
- Numbness and tingling
- Muscle weakness
- Burning sensations
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Chiropractic care seeks to find pain relief options without drugs. A chiropractor assists patients by helping that patient’s body heal itself, rather than simply treating the symptoms of a disorder. Because sciatica can be caused in so many ways, our chiropractor will take the time to fully identify what is causing each and every one of our patient’s symptoms, so that the proper treatments can be provided.
One such treatment is spinal adjustments. When the spine is misaligned, pressure is added all over the body. Spinal adjustments realign the spine to remove this pressure. In addition to this, proper spinal alignment will also increase the flow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the spine. This improves the overall health of other parts and systems of the body.
Chiropractic care can address the pain issues you are dealing with as well as increase your health in other areas of your life. Our chiropractor can help you improve your mobility, inflammation, and energy levels.
