When you get the hip pain treatment or lower back pain care you need, you can ease the pain of sciatica in your lower back, legs, hips, and feet.
Basics of Sciatica
Sciatica occurs when your sciatic nerve becomes inflamed. This nerve starts at the base of your spine, branching down one leg and across the top of your foot. The sciatic nerve can become inflamed after an injury to the area or when the end of the sciatic nerve is compressed because of arthritis or a narrowed space between vertebrae.
Nerve pain can be felt anywhere along the low back, into the buttocks, and into your feet if the nerve is irritated enough. Our chiropractor can be an excellent way to reduce strain in a compressed area and make it easier for your sciatic nerve to heal. In addition, you can work with other sciatica treatment providers simultaneously, as chiropractic care does not interfere with other treatment providers.
Treatment for Sciatica with Our Chiropractor
When you work with our chiropractor for low back pain treatment, you will go through an evaluation to determine the cause of your pain. Sciatica includes classic symptoms, such as numbness and tingling down one or both legs. In addition, our chiropractor may complete imaging to determine if other issues in your low back cause sciatic nerve pain. Treatment may involve decompression techniques to open up the area between vertebrae, giving your sciatic nerve a chance to heal. Spinal manipulations, ultrasound, temperature therapy, or massage may all be used to ease the strain on your lower back and hips. You will be scheduled when dealing with sciatica, as chiropractic care is progressive.
