Helping You With Your Sciatic Nerve Pain
The scientific proof of the effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments on sciatic nerve pain is becoming difficult to argue with. Spine health doctors, chiropractors and other health experts can all attest to the benefits that chiropractic care delivers to those who suffer from sciatica. But many still question “how?” To fully answer that question, we must first address what sciatica really is.
What is Sciatica?
Marked by intense pain, numbness, muscle weakness or burning, sciatic nerve pain can often debilitate its victims making normal or routine activities difficult to undertake. Though many people report that their pain is isolated to the leg or foot region, others report chronic, often intense lower back pain that is difficult to find relief from. The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest nerve in the body and when the lower back is compromised, the sciatic nerve can become “pinched”
How do chiropractic adjustments help?
Because sciatica is a disorder of the lower spine, the sciatic nerve must be relieved of the distress signals that it continuously receives, causing pain to radiate down either one leg or the other, often ending at the foot. Chiropractic adjustments help the spine to overcome the misalignment that is causing the sciatic nerve to become irritated. Through regular adjustments, yoga, massage and even acupuncture, many sufferers have been able to recover from the daily symptoms of sciatic nerve pain and experience freedom to fully engage in their favorite activities again.
