Sciatica pain is severe pain starting in the low back that shoots sharp pain down one or both legs. There are many causes of sciatica pain. One of the most common reasons for sciatica pain is a bulging or herniated disc. Other common causes may be osteoarthritis causing nerve impingement or narrowing of the space where nerve roots leave the spinal canal also know as stenosis. Our chiropractors and acupuncturist can help you get rid of your back and leg pain. Studies have shown that receiving chiropractic adjustments or acupuncture can help decrease your leg pain and get you back to doing what you love. This is done by helping to relax the muscles surrounding the injured area and increasing restricted joint movement of the injured area. This will help to promote proper healing of the damaged tissues in the surrounding area.
Along with Chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture care we can help you by instructing in exercises and stretches to help the injured area. These will help to promote movement in the damaged area and help to strengthen weak muscles. By strengthening the muscles we can help stabilize the area to help decrease leg pain and help to strengthen the core which will help to prevent further injuries in the future.
If you are experiencing any sciatica pain make sure to make an appointment with your Chiropractor, Acupuncturist, or other Doctor. They can help determine the cause of the sciatica pain and make sure you are getting the best treatment possible.
