Sciatica is different from common back pain. With this condition, you might feel pain or uncomfortable nerve sensations that run from your lower back and down one leg, reaching into your calf or foot. Nerve sensations can include numbness, tingling, burning, and muscle weakness. The source of sciatica is nerve compression affecting the sciatic nerve. The best and most effective treatment for sciatica is chiropractic care. Our team at Sunnyside Wellness & Chiropractic Center in Fresno can help you find relief from your sciatica.
What Is Sciatica?
The sciatic nerve branches out from the lumbar portion of the spine through the hips and extends down to the feet. When the vertebrae in the lumbar spine are out of alignment, one or more nerve branches are compressed and cause irritation and inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments work to properly align the spine by removing the sciatic nerve's compression. In some cases, sciatica is caused by a herniated or slipped disk or narrowing of the spine. Typically, sciatica symptoms will only impact one side of the body.
How We Can Help
Our chiropractor can help by using gentle manipulation to put your spine back into alignment, taking pressure off the nerve. Combining chiropractic adjustments with regenerative medicine is another effective method of relieving sciatica. Chiropractic manipulation puts the vertebrae back into place, while massage therapy helps the muscles relax, making it easier for you to regain your ability to move freely.
