Are you looking for the best treatment for sciatica that doesn’t involve surgery or months of strict recovery? Sciatica often presents a lower back and leg pain that can make walking and performing everyday tasks difficult. The condition can be caused by a herniated disc in the lower back which pinches the sciatic nerve, extremely tight buttock muscles that put pressure on the sciatic nerve, spinal stenosis, which causes a narrowing of the spinal canal and spondylolisthesis, which is the displacement of a vertebra, usually where one slips forward over another. The good news is that our nerve pain doctor can determine the causes of your sciatic nerve pain and develop a non-invasive treatment plan to reduce your pain and heal the injury.
Natural Pain Relief
Chiropractic treatments offer natural pain relief. This is because prescription medications that mask the pain are not recommended. Instead, chiropractic care seeks to treat your pain using holistic remedies, like rest, ice and heat therapy, corrective exercises that can help strengthen your core muscles and chiropractic adjustments, which help ensure that your vertebrae are in the correct locations and not putting pressure on the surrounding soft tissues or nerves.
Addresses Root Cause of Problems
Receiving a diagnosis of sciatica only means that your sciatic nerve is pinched. It does not tell you the cause of your lower back and leg pain. Instead, further tests, like digital x-rays, and physical evaluation are needed to determine what is putting pressure on your sciatic nerve. Once the root cause of your pain is determined, a treatment program is developed to help reduce your pain and heal the cause.
Little to No Side Effects
Chiropractic treatments for sciatic nerve pain have little to no side effects. This means that you can continue to visit your family doctor and take your current medications because chiropractic care will not interfere with your current health and wellness routines. There’s also no need for long recovery times after your chiropractic appointments. You can continue your day as normal.
Chiropractic Care for Sciatic Nerve Pain
The best treatment for sciatica is chiropractic care from our nerve pain doctor. Our chiropractic treatments include:
No Cost To You Consultation
A consultation allows you to talk to our nerve pain doctor about your back and leg pain and receive possible treatments in order to heal your condition. These consultations usually take less than an hour, and they allow you to determine if you want to move forward with an examination, diagnosis and treatment plan.
Manual or Instrument Adjustments
Manual and instrument adjustments can correct minor spinal misalignments in your vertebrae, which takes the pressure off the surrounding soft tissues and help heal herniated discs. The difference between the two is that our nerve pain doctor performs manual adjustments with his hands and forearms while instrument adjustments are performed using a handheld instrument adjusting device.
KST stands for Korean Specific Technique, and it is an in-depth protocol to correct misalignments in the spine as well as imbalances in the body. The process involves challenging specific parts of the body, checking the position of the joints and making any necessary corrections with a handheld instrument adjusting device.
