Sciatica Pain Relief Through Chiropractic Care
Sciatica is a painful yet common symptom that articulates a larger underlying complication with your spine. Over 40% of adults experience sciatica at some point in their lives. Most people turn to pain killers to help them pass the time from one episode of sciatica to the next, but there is a better solution. The next time you feel this severe lower back pain that stretches its way to your legs, take a trip to the chiropractor to get effective relief.
What is Sciatica?
The radiating pain you feel along your lower back, hips, buttocks, and legs is referred to as sciatica. Sciatica usually only occurs on one side of your body at a time. This pain is generally caused by a complication in one of your spinal disks leading to a compression of your sciatic nerve. Once this nerve is triggered, your body suffers from inflammation in the area and this is what creates the radiating pain and numbness.
Sciatica can affect just about anyone, but you may have more chances of experiencing it if:
- You’re aging
- You suffer from obesity
- You carry heavy loads often or drive for long periods
- You sit for extended amounts of time
- You have diabetes
Though mild sciatica often goes away after light treatment, if your symptoms are severe, you should seek medical help right away. You should make sure to see a doctor if you experience sudden and severe pain in your lower back or you lose bowel and bladder control alongside the sciatica.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help Sciatica?
Chiropractors are trained to help you with any musculoskeletal issues you may suffer from. Chiropractic care works so well in treating sciatica because manual therapy can reduce the inflammation near the trigger point and give you the pain relief you’re craving.
