Chiropractic Care Can Address Sciatica Symptoms
At Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine, we have years of experience providing residents of Lubbock, TX with relief from lower back pain and sciatica. Chiropractic care is an attractive option of sciatica treatment because it is natural and non-invasive. Rather than masking the pain with prescription medication or resorting to invasive surgery, chiropractic care will relieve your pain, improve your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural healing process.
Recognizing the symptoms of sciatica is the first step towards receiving the care you need. Some of the more common symptoms of sciatica include:
- Lower back pain
- Leg weakness
- Loss of range of motion on the affected side
- Shooting pain from the lower back to the leg
Chiropractic Care for Sciatica
Sciatica comes about due to pressure on the sciatic nerve. The pressure causes inflammation. Reducing inflammation and pressure on the nerve is the only way to treat sciatica. A series of chiropractic adjustments can help to reduce the pressure on the sciatic nerve by ensuring that the structures in the back and hip are properly aligned. An initial adjustment will relieve your pain, while further adjustments will reduce inflammation, improve your range of motion, and allow your body to repair itself.
The relief is cumulative, so the more adjustments you have, the more relief you’ll experience. When the structures in your back and hips are properly aligned, further chiropractic care will keep them in place so the symptoms do not return in the future.
