There are several causes that trigger sciatic pain. Chiropractic care is a safe, drug-free way to treat it.
What Causes Sciatica
Sciatica is a symptom, not a condition. In other words it’s a red flag for an underlying issue. Statistics show that approximately 90% of sciatica cases are due to a herniated disc in the lumbar spine. Other common causes are lumbar spinal stenosis (narrowing of spinal canal), spondylolisthesis (slipped vertebrae), traumatic injury, piriformis syndrome (muscle pressing sciatic nerve), or even a spinal tumor.
All of the above put pressure on your sciatic nerve, which runs from the base of your spine and into your feet. You feel the pressure in the form of pain that radiates down your legs. Sometimes numbness and tingling are present as well. Sciatic pain always needs an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment.
How Chiropractic Treats Sciatica
Ridge Farm Back Pain Center has various ways to treat sciatic pain. We will perform a thorough exam to ensure accurate diagnosis before a balanced blend of heat and cold therapies to ease the pain and relax muscles as needed.
We specialize in ultrasound therapy for sciatica. It’s heat that penetrates deep into your muscles to increase circulation, reduce muscle spasms and cramping, as well as swelling and stiffness. We’re also experts in spinal manipulation designed to provide sciatic pain relief. We’ll build a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
