Sciatica and Chiropractic

Sciatica is a common ailment that increasingly affects people because of extensive sitting in front of a computer or other work related tasks. The sciatic nerve extends from the lower back down the back of both legs. Pain may travel from the lower back all the way down to the feet. Causes vary from degenerative back discs to spinal stenosis, pregnancy, and more. Chiropractic treatment may involve any or all of the following treatments:

  1. Ice/cold therapy
  2. Spinal manipulations (adjustments)
  3. Ultrasound

Diagnosis by your chiropractor will involve a review of your medical history and a body examination to pinpoint the areas affected. A treatment plan will be determined based upon the chiropractic exam.
