Understanding Sciatica

Sciatica back pain occurs when the sciatic nerve is pinched, twisted, compressed, or injured in some way. The sciatic is a major nerve that extends from the spinal cord and branches out at the lower back. It then travels down both legs from the hip to the ankles. This is why pain associated with sciatica nerve trauma often radiates down one or both legs and can affect the hip, knee, and feet.  Treating nerve-based pain takes a very specialized approach because it is largely reliant on properly addressing the cause of the nerve damage, repairing as much of the damage as possible, and doing what can be done to avoid further injury. That is why chiropractors are some of the best-suited medical professionals for the treatment of sciatica pain.

How Chiropractors Can Help Treat Sciatica

  • Preserves spinal alignment- when the backbones of the spine get askew, they can press in on the nerves and cause them to become inflamed and painful.
  • Relieves pinches nerves- pinched nerves are unable to communicate with the nervous system as they are designed to, and this causes pain and weakness.
  • Reinforces back muscles- when back muscles are strong, they keep the spine properly aligned and this helps support the spine and prevents injury.
  • Enhances bodily flow- a chiropractor can do adjustments and massages to keep blood flowing properly and to drain away waste material in the lymph systems.
  • Speeds healing – when all the systems of the body are in proper balance, the body can easily heal itself and recover after an injury.
