Sciatica Treatments at Peterson Chiropractic

If you experience sciatica pain, numbness, or tingling can make finding the right back pain treatment difficult. Our chiropractor can provide the chiropractic care you deserve to ease the strain on your sciatic nerve. At Peterson Chiropractic in Durham, NC, Dr. Erick Peterson works with patients experiencing sciatica pain and uses treatments that don't require medication. 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.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon with a buldging disc. I was in constant pain. There were times it was painful to turn over in bed. I could not bend to tie my shoes. The most painful thing was that my active lifestyle was completely changing. I could not play golf or exercise without pain. I was treated by a physical therapist, and then a chiropractor for about nine months. This treatment temporarily relieved a lot of my pain. Dr. Peterson told me the DRX-9000 had helped others with my condition. After the first two weeks of painless treatment I could tell a difference. I now play golf without pain. I just played in a three day tournament. I can even tie my own shoes. I do recommend this treatment."
