Visit a Chiropractor for a Sciatica Pain Treatment

Our sciatica pain treatment is one of the most common treatments that we perform. A large number of Americans of all age groups suffer from sciatica pain and are required to get sciatica pain treatment to help ease some of the dull, achy, sporadically sharp pains that are often described as being similar to an electric shock or a severe toothache. Some of the other symptoms associated with sciatica include a feeling of burning, numbness, and sometimes, tingling sensations. One of the important points to differentiate is that sciatica in and of itself is not a disorder. Rather, sciatica is a symptom of an existing disorder. When you come in to get your sciatica pain treatment, it is the actual disorder we will be treating so the symptom, also known as sciatica pain, will be relieved. Sciatica pain is radiating or reflecting pain.

CONDITIONS CAUSING SCIATICA PAIN

In order to properly provide sciatica pain treatment, it is important to understand that there are numerous disorders that can lead to sciatica nerve pain. Some of these disorders include lumbar spine subluxations, misaligned vertebrae bodies, herniated discs, bulging or slipped discs, pregnancy, and childbirth, non-spinal disorders including diabetes and constipation, tumors, or even simply sitting on one's back pocket wallet for an extended period of time.

Piriformis syndrome is one of the most common causes of sciatica pain. The piriformis muscle is located in the lower part of the spine and is used to connect the thigh bone while simultaneously assisting in hip rotation. The sciatic nerve runs directly beneath the piriformis muscle, and since this muscle is susceptible to injury, any cramping or a spasm can lead to a need for sciatica pain treatment. The piriformis muscle can be injured in a slip and fall, as a result of hip arthritis, or because of a difference in leg length. Your chiropractor can help you with your sciatica pain treatment by treating the piriformis syndrome and ultimately relieving the pressure on the sciatica nerve.

SCIATICA PAIN TREATMENT FROM A CHIROPRACTOR 

If you are suffering from sciatica nerve pain, our chiropractic office can provide a number of different techniques and will help relieve the sciatica pain. Some of the sciatica pain treatments we offer include the following.

Chiropractic adjustments spinal manipulation: The most effective sciatica pain treatment can come from manipulating the spine and helping restore misaligned vertebrae bodies to their proper position on the spine. Regardless of the technique, which can vary from a swift, high-velocity thrust to one that combines the use of minimal force and gentle pressure, we can use spinal manipulation as a treatment for many causes of sciatica pain.

Ultrasound: Using the gentle heat created in our offices with the use of ultrasound waves, we are able to provide a sciatica pain treatment by penetrating deep into the tissues and helping relax them. This not only works to reduce muscle spasms and cramping but also helps with swelling, stiffness, and pain. For patients with piriformis syndrome, ultrasound therapy can be an extremely effective sciatica pain treatment option.
