Sciatica is nerve pain from irritation of the sciatica nerve, located in the lower back that runs down the back of each leg. The biggest complaint of sciatica is radiating pain starting in your lower back that works its way down the back of the legs. Other symptoms include numbness, tingling, and weakness in the legs or feet. Approximately 40 percent of adults will get it during their lifetime.
How can your Chiropractor help?
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, which are commonly prescribed to help manage pain.
Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive 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, your body has the ability to better manage symptoms caused by sciatica.
