Advanced Chiropractic Center understands just how disruptive sciatica pain can be. That is why Dr. Debra White BSN/DC and Dr. McKenzy L. Brewer BS/BS/DC are here to help. Chiropractic care can not only alleviate the symptoms associated with sciatica but will also treat the root cause of the problem to prevent it from reoccurring. Whether your pain is acute or chronic, our Nacogdoches chiropractors will create a personalized treatment plan for a fast and effective recovery.
What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a condition that causes pain when moving or sitting. It is a condition caused by a compressed sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back, through the legs, and into the bottoms of our feet. This nerve can become compressed due to the inflammation of muscles around the sciatic nerve. Sciatica can occur suddenly, or it can develop due to gradual wear and tear.
Symptoms of sciatica include:
- Lower back pain
- Pain down the side of each leg
- Numbness or tingling in the lower extremities
- Feeling of weakness in the lower extremities
- Pins and needles feeling
Anyone can suffer from sciatica. However, your chances of suffering from this disorder increase if you work in labor-intensive jobs, do lots of lifting and moving, or are of older age.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Our chiropractors will help determine the exact cause of your back pain, whether it's sciatic or something else. We can then provide a personalized treatment plan to alleviate your sciatica and prevent it from returning. Common treatment methods we offer for sciatica include:
- Spinal decompression to help gently stretch the spine and realign the herniated or bulging disc, relieving the excessive pressure on the sciatic nerve
- Manual or spinal adjustments to help realign the spine and musculoskeletal system
- Lifestyle advice to help you avoid potential triggers in the future and improve your recovery time
How Long Will Treatment Take?
Our chiropractor will determine how long sessions will last. Usually, sessions for sciatica treatment can last from 30 to 45 minutes. You can start to see the results of treatment in as little as a few weeks. When combined with lifestyle changes, such as improving posture and avoiding heavy lifting, you can ensure your sciatica does not return.
