What is Sciatica?
Simply put, sciatica is nerve pain from irritation of the sciatic nerve, located in the lower back that runs down the back of each leg. The biggest tell of sciatica is radiating pain starting in your lower back that works its way down the back of the legs. Other signs include numbness, tingling and weakness in the legs or feet. Sciatica nerve pain is something to be on the lookout for, as many as 40 percent of adults will get it during their lifetime.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help Those with Sciatica?
Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve sciatica pain. Routine chiropractic care provides patients with sciatica treatment that's a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription medications or over-the-counter pain medications (OTCs), which are commonly prescribed to patients to help them manage their pain.
Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive therapy, known as a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve function of both the affected joint and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system function and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage symptoms caused by sciatica.
Below are some of the health benefits chiropractic adjustments can provide patients with sciatica pain and discomfort:
- Reduced pain and discomfort
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved range of motion
- Improved flexibility
