Sciatica is a debilitating low back pain that not only causes many people to miss work, but also makes it difficult for them to perform daily tasks. Chronic pain like sciatica can have a negative effect on your quality of life, as well as bring on the potential for larger health issues later in life. Chiropractic care provides a holistic, non-invasive relief for sciatica to help you get back on track! Let’s start by understanding where this pain comes from in the first place.
The root of the problem comes from the anatomy of the sciatic nerve. Misalignments in the spine will either compress the nerve directly, or change the positioning of the vertebrae of your spine. This will cause bulging of the disc, which will compress the nerve root. Often times, this pain can seem incurable and hopeless. The good news is that chiropractic care can really assist in alleviating and eliminating this pain at its source!
Through chiropractic adjustments, a chiropractor can remove the misalignment by shifting the vertebrae into proper alignment, therefore removing the pressure off of those nerves. Through this process, that sciatic pain can lessen or be completely alleviated! A recent study tested 44 workers after they went to the hospital for severe sciatic pain. Most of these workers had been experiencing this pain for three or more weeks. After a chiropractor performed specific adjustments to the spine, 91% of the patients returned to full-time work after just 21 days!
