Why you should go to a chiropractor for sciatica therapy
Sciatica therapy typically incorporates a combination of strengthening, stretching and aerobic conditioning. These elements are a central component of almost any sciatica treatment plan. When patients engage in a regular program of gentle exercises and stretching guided by a trained doctor, they can recover more quickly from sciatica pain and are less likely to have future episodes of pain.
Herniated discs and the sciatic nerve
When a herniated disc presses on nerve roots, it can cause pain, numbness and weakness in the area of the body where the nerve travels. A herniated disc in the lower back can cause pain and numbness in the buttock and down the leg. These nerves that run down the legs from the buttocks are referred to as the sciatic nerves. Chiropractic care seeks to realign the spinal system so that the sciatic nerve pressure is alleviated, taking away the pain suffered from sciatica.
The importance of spinal & posture screening for sciatica
Sciatica pain originates in the spine, usually causing discomfort and pain in the lower body and legs. Finding out where there is nerve damage that radiates to the extremities from the spine is crucial to devising a treatment plan to target the areas in the lower spine that are causing the pain.
