If you suffer from sciatica, you know firsthand how debilitating it can be. The shooting pain and numbness can make simple activities seem almost impossible. All the things you usually enjoy - walking your dog, playing ball with your kids, or taking a stroll down the beach - can seem downright torturous when dealing with sciatic nerve pain. Luckily, chiropractic is here to help!
What Exactly is Sciatica?
The sciatic nerve is the longest and thickest nerve in your body; at its widest point it's the size of a man's thumb, and it travels all the way from the lumbar region of the spine to the toes. Unfortunately, this nerve is highly susceptible to the pressure and irritation that can cause sciatica. Just a few of the common factors in sciatic pain are piriformis syndrome, pregnancy, or a herniated lumbar disk. Beside discomfort, sciatica causes tingling, numbness, and even limited motion in the legs and feet.
A medical doctor might recommend medication or steroids to control sciatica pain, or even attempt to fix the problem through surgery. But why not try chiropractic instead? Chiropractic uses gentle spinal manipulation to relieve the pressure on the nerve that's causing you pain - without the use of potentially harmful drugs and invasive surgery. Our staff is dedicated to helping you find relief in the safest, most natural way possible. Along with spinal adjustments, our chiropractors can help you learn stretching and exercise techniques which will speed up your recovery and keep your sciatica from returning.
