Sciatica Nerve Pain Chiropractor
Do you have pain in your lower back that seems to radiate down to your lower extremities? Does the pain seem to get worse every time you sit down to take a breather? Does the pain seem to be only on one side of your body? If so, then you may be suffering sciatica.
Sciatica nerve pain occurs when pain radiates along the length of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve begins at the base of your lower back and branches out through your hips, down your glutes, and down each leg. Typically, only one side of your body is affected at a time during a sciatica flare.
A herniated disk or bone spur happening in your spine typically causes sciatica nerve pain that puts pressure on your sciatic nerve. The issue generally dissipates over time; however, they are ways for you to combat the sciatic nerve pain with the help of your doctor or chiropractor.
Academy Injury & Health Center’s team of well-trained and dedicated chiropractors can help address your sciatica nerve pain and help you recover faster. We can recommend several stretches and offer a variety of treatments that can help alleviate sciatica nerve back pain.
Our chiropractors can help alleviate your back pain. Sciatica nerve pain can be debilitating in the moment, especially for the countless people dealing with this type of pain, hoping that it will go away on its own. While it will eventually go away, there are steps you can take today to help alleviate the pain you feel.
Spinal adjustments are the backbone of chiropractic care. Chiropractors use their hands to apply sudden force to a particular spinal joint. This force helps free the restricted movement of your spine and realign vertebral bodies into their proper position.
Spinal adjustments are only one type of therapy for dealing with sciatica. Our doctors can also perform ice/cold therapy for your sciatic nerve pain. This method reduces the inflammation in the affected area and can help to control the sciatic pain. Applying ice packs to inflamed areas is a tried and true method of pain management, and one that our sciatic nerve pain doctors trust when it comes to helping our patients.
Additionally, we can use ultrasound therapy as a way of dealing with sciatica nerve pain. Ultrasound involves gentle heat generated by sound waves that penetrate deep into your tissues. The heat generated from the sound waves micro-massages the affected area and helps to alleviate your sciatica. It can also increase blood circulation and help relieve symptoms such as muscle spasms, cramping, swelling, stiffness, and general pain.
At Academy Injury & Health Center, our goal is to provide you with the best chiropractic care. Our dedicated team will help you on your road to recovery from sciatic nerve pain and give you a pain-free back in no time.
