Chiropractic Reduces Pain & Promotes Healing

Share

A variety of issues weigh in on an individual’s likelihood of ending up with sciatica. Most of them deal with increased pressure on the spine.

According to the Mayo Clinic, sciatica can best be described as a compression of the nerves on the spine, most commonly occurring as a result of a herniated disk or a bone spur. The impingement of the nerves can then cause inflammation, pain, and often, symptoms of tingling and numbness on the affected leg. Sciatica can commonly be the result of increased stress on the spine and/or nerves of the spine.

Obesity, improper lifting, a sedentary lifestyle, and getting older are all frequent factors that cause sciatica and its familiar symptoms. Carrying too much weight can strain the spine, causing damage that may result in sciatica just as twisting the body incorrectly to lift heavy objects can also result in injury to the spine.

Treatment options for sciatica can vary and the choice depends on the severity of the condition.

Chiropractic care for sciatica works to align the spine and reduce the pressure on the lower back. Together with strengthening exercises, a person’s symptoms of sciatica can be greatly reduced. Acupuncture has also shown positive results in the treatment of sciatica. Other treatment options for sciatica involving medication include, anti-inflammatory drug therapy, supplements, and cortisone injections.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Individuals dealing with the symptoms of sciatica can experience painful and irritating sensations throughout their daily activities. While diagnosing the possible root cause for sciatic pain is essential, seeking the appropriate medical treatment for relief of the symptoms is crucial towards restoring an individual’s normal lifestyle. Chiropractic care, along with several other treatments, can help gradually relieve the symptoms of sciatica and improve an individuals overall health. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
