Sciatica Chiropractic Solution Pain Relief El Paso, Texas

Share

The sciatic nerve can be compressed, pinched, twisted, moved out of position by a variety of things, including injury/s and spinal conditions, diseases, and the most common a herniated disc. This could be time to try the chiropractic solution that can treat sciatica symptoms and bring relief quickly. If you are experiencing a shooting, electrical, tingling, numb pain down one of your legs could be a presenting of sciatica symptoms.

 

Sciatica

Sciatica is really a symptom itself caused by lumbar radiculopathy. Lumbar radiculopathy is a medical term referring to a low back condition/injury/disorder that is affecting the nerves in this area. The sciatic nerve travels from the lower back down both of the legs and into the feet. Added pressure placed on the nerve from a herniated disc can lead to common symptoms.

 

Symptoms

Sciatica symptoms include:

  • Pain in the leg/s
  • Shooting pain that goes down from the low back, through the leg, calf and sometimes into the foot
  • A feeling of electricity down one leg
  • Burning pain
  • Pain from moving
  • Numbness
  • Weakness

Causes

Causes of sciatica include:

Vertebrae Out of Alignment

Misaligned vertebrae, referred to as subluxations can put pressure on nerves in the spine – including the sciatic nerve.

Disc Herniation

The discs that cushion the vertebrae are made up of a tough outer layer and a softer inner layer. When the outer layer is damaged and the inner layer comes out into the spine, it is referred to as disc herniation.

A herniated disc means that the inner layer of the disc is putting pressure on nerves in the spine. A herniated disc impacts the sciatic nerve and can lead to sciatica.

 

Car Accidents

A car accident can easily damage the spine and soft tissues. An accident can cause a misalignment of the spine, a herniated disc, or other injuries that cause symptoms of sciatica.

Sports Injury/s

Even the fittest athletes are susceptible to back injuries, which in turn can cause sciatica. The spine and discs can be damaged due to a large impact, repetitive motion injuries, or even twisting the wrong way.

 

Work Injuries

Many sufferers of sciatica do not realize that their workplace activities – including repetitive motions and sitting or standing in one position for long periods of time – can lead to sciatica.

How Chiropractic Solution Helps

Prevention found that sixty percent of individuals with sciatica failed to find relief from other treatments found their symptoms improved after chiropractic treatment.

The chiropractic solution works because it gets to the source of the problem and relieves pressure on the sciatic nerve. Chiropractic treatments include:

Realignment

Spinal misalignments are often the cause of sciatica can be corrected through careful chiropractic adjustments. The chiropractor analyzes the misalignment, then applies pressure to the area to correct the misalignment. The pressure is removed from the sciatic nerve, and this is done on and off to get the correct position and massaging the inflamed tissues until symptoms improve.

Spine Decompression

For those whose sciatica is caused by a herniated disc, spinal decompression can bring real relief. Using a specially designed table, the chiropractor can gently stretch the spine – creating space for the disc to heal and pull back from the sciatic nerve.

Patients with sciatica feel better with time, usually a few weeks. If pain continues, other treatment modalities can be discussed. Muscle spasms can accompany sciatica symptoms and can be treated with heat or ice therapy. A doctor may advise light exercise like short walks and once recovery is established they may give you exercises to strengthen your back and core.
