Sciatica Treatment

Chiropractic sciatica treatment is one of the best non-invasive ways to deal with sciatic nerve damage. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body. It travels from the bottom of your spine to your feet, and a compressed nerve can cause pain to travel from the base of your spine and down one or both legs.

The good news is that we can help treat this condition with various treatment methods and when you come to our centre for treatment, you’ll have access to the very best facilities and table (axial traction and decompression tables) for sciatica and chronic lower back pain as well as scoliosis.

Symptoms

Many people have lower back and leg pain that isn’t associated with sciatica. The symptoms of this condition include pain from the base of the spine that travels down one or both legs. The pain is often dull, sharp and like pins or needles. We will diagnose you during your initial consultation to see if you have sciatica or a similar condition.

Ice Therapy

This is very important during the beginning of your treatment. Properly applied ice therapy around the affected area will help reduce inflammation, which will also reduce your pain and swelling. This helps the sciatic nerve calm down and it makes the nerve more receptive to other treatment methods.

Getting Proper Treatment

Proper sciatica treatment is crucial if you want to reduce the pain in your back and legs. We will be able to diagnose your condition and use the best techniques at our disposal to make you feel better again.

 

Spinal Adjustment

Since the sciatic nerve resides in the spinal column, proper spinal alignment can help reduce pain and free you from restricted movement. The most common reason for sciatica is that the vertebrae are putting pressure on the sciatic nerve. Relieving that pressure will greatly reduce your symptoms.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

This treatment method employs electrical nerve stimulation that can help with sciatic pain and muscle spasms. Research has shown that this is an effective sciatica treatment option in certain circumstances.pressure will greatly reduce your symptoms.

What to Expect

Many people with sciatica feel relief after the initial treatment, and their pain continues to get better with future visits. While it largely depends on the severity of your condition, many people are able to easy manage the pain with several weeks or months.
