Sciatica Treatments

Sciatica is a painful condition that can cause pain to radiate all the way down to your foot. It starts at the base of your spine, where your sciatic nerve can become compressed. At Crimson Chiropractic in Tuscaloosa, AL, Dr. David Richardson and Dr Daniel Fowler are both prepared to help you heal from the pain caused by sciatica using a variety of treatment modalities. If you have pain in your lower back, or a burning pain that travels down your leg, it's time to see how a chiropractor can help.

Common Symptoms of Sciatica

Sciatica is caused when your sciatic nerve is compressed and inflamed because of an injury or disc compression. If you have a narrowed space between your vertebrae, this can cause pressure on the end of your sciatic nerve. You might experience pain in your lower back that doesn't resolve with medication. Some people feel tingling down the back of their legs, down to the top of their feet. The pain can be in either leg, or down both, depending on the extent of the sciatic nerve compression.

How Sciatica is Treated With Chiropractic

The first step in treatment for sciatica is to identify what is causing the problem. If the issue is spinal compression, a chiropractor will use a variety of techniques to open up the area. Stretching, spinal adjustments, ultrasound, massage, and electrical muscle stimulation can all help your body heal from the pain of sciatica. Once the pressure is off the end of your sciatic nerve, the inflammation should decrease. It may take time for sciatica to go away, and chiropractic care should occur several times a week to stay on top of the pain.
