Sciatica is a painful condition characterized by a numbing or radiating pain sensation originating in the lower back and spreading down through the buttocks and legs. This pain condition is symptomatic of a spinal misalignment. In order to effectively treat sciatica pain, it is critical to address the underlying mechanical misalignment that is triggering the pain. Our chiropractic center understands how to treat sciatica pain without the need for medication or surgery. Through chiropractic adjustments and complementary therapies, our chiropractor can help you manage this pain and return to living a full, active life.
If you have recently been diagnosed with sciatica pain, you may be feeling anxious or overwhelmed by this diagnosis. It is natural to worry about becoming dependent on medication in order to live life comfortably. While medication is often prescribed for relieving sciatica symptoms, drugs are not a long-term pain management solution. Medication works by numbing pain sensations; once medication wears off, pain will return. In fact, patients who rely on medication to manage their pain are also at increased risk for injury and future problems; they may aggravate the underlying injury and make it even worse. In order to effectively treat sciatica, treatments must address and correct the underlying mechanical misalignment. Otherwise, pain will persist.
Our chiropractor understands how to treat sciatic pain using gentle, chiropractic adjustments to correct the underlying spinal misalignment. A herniated disc, for example, can place pressure on the sciatica nerve, triggering pain. The sciatic nerve is one of the body’s major nerves, traveling from the lower spine through the buttocks and branching out into the legs. Consequently, compression at the root of the sciatic nerve can then trigger radiating pain down the length of the nerve. In order to relieve this pain, pressure on the nerve must be alleviated. This is exactly what spinal adjustments do; they create space within the spine for proper alignment, allowing a herniated or slipped disc to return to its proper position. These adjustments bring alignment back to the spine, relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve for long-term pain relief.
Spinal adjustments are important not only for relieving sciatic pain, but also for reducing the risk for future injury. As long as the spine is out of alignment, the body is at greater risk for injury. You may already be struggling with back pain, and without proper care, additional injury and pain could occur to your body. Our chiropractor strongly recommends taking proactive steps to correct the spinal misalignment triggering your pain.
A radiating pain through the low back and legs can make living an active lifestyle nearly impossible. By relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve, chiropractic adjustments help our patients from Harrisburg, Hershey, Progress, Colonial Park, Lower Paxton, and Grantville, PA return to enjoying their favorite activities. Most importantly, by addressing the underlying injury, chiropractic adjustments help to reduce the risk for future pain and injury.
