Pivotal Chiropractic and Wellness: Helping with Sciatica
Sciatica is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the buttocks, legs, and lower back. The sciatic nerve is the biggest and longest nerve in the body. This condition often happens when the sciatic nerve is irritated or squeezed. Anyone who has ever had sciatica can tell you that it makes you unable to do things. You should be aware that chiropractic care could help in this situation.
At Pivotal Chiropractic and Wellness, we know how to help people with sciatica and other back and nerve problems.
Getting to the root of the problem and treating it
The first step to getting better from sciatica is to figure out what’s causing your pain. Your sciatic nerve could be getting pinched because of a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, or another health problem. Our chiropractors will carefully look at your problem and work with you to make a treatment plan that is just right for you. As an example, chiropractic adjustments, exercises, and other therapies can be used to reduce stress on the sciatic nerve and improve its function.
Getting rid of pain and distress
One of the best things about going to a chiropractor is getting rid of pain. Chiropractic adjustments can help ease the pain, numbness, and tingling in the lower back, buttocks, and legs that come with sciatica. So that you feel better, our chiropractors will work with you to figure out the best way to treat your pain.
Getting better range of motion and function
Chiropractors are trained to adjust the spine to relieve pain, but they can also make people more mobile and improve their performance. If sciatica has made it hard for you to move around, our chiropractors can help you get back to normal and do all the things you used to do. This can be done with chiropractic adjustments and other types of physical therapy, like stretching and strength training.
