What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a term used to describe pain that radiates from the lower back into the hips and down into the legs. This pain travels the path of the sciatic nerve, a large nerve that provides important communication from your lower body to your brain. In some situations, this nerve becomes pinched, often due to spinal compressions. When this happens, it sends pain signals to your brain constantly, triggering the pain sensation you have. Sciatica can last for a few minutes, but it can also become chronic or last for weeks. When you are limited by sciatica, turn to our team for the treatment you need.
How Can a Chiropractor Help You with Sciatica Pain?
When you meet with our chiropractor, Dr. Hanna, you’ll get a full examination and consultation to discuss the pain you have. If it is sciatica, there are often treatment options that can reduce the discomfort you feel. With sciatica, we often recommend spinal manipulations or adjustments. These work to realign the vertebra, or spinal column bones. Often, in those with sciatica, these bones are misaligned, which leads to the pinching of the fluid-filled sacs located between each bone. This creates the pinched nerve or pain you feel.
When you receive a chiropractic manipulation, we’ll work to realign the spinal column and your musculoskeletal system. In doing so, we may be able to reduce the compression and pain signals. This process does not involve surgery. We also do not use pain medications as a way of hiding your symptoms.
