Here at West Hartford Chiropractic, our chiropractors can help you with your sciatic nerve pain through conservative chiropractic techniques that are designed to reduce your symptoms while healing the injury causing your pain.

Understanding Sciatica Symptoms and Causes

When you are diagnosed with sciatica, the medical professional telling you the news isn’t referring to a condition. Instead, he or she is telling you about a specific symptom. The medical term refers to a compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, which can be caused by a herniated disc, extremely tight buttock muscles, a degenerative disc disease or spinal stenosis.

When one of these conditions puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, it causes moderate to severe lower back and leg pain. In severe cases, you may even have numbing and tingling in your legs and be unable to walk without assistance.

Treatments for Sciatic Nerve Pain from Our Chiropractor in West Hartford

Our chiropractor in West Hartford offers various treatments for sciatic nerve pain, including spinal adjustments, acupuncture, and physical therapy. Treatment usually starts with spinal adjustments. When your vertebrae are misaligned, they can cause inflammation in the surrounding soft tissues and compress nerves. Spinal adjustments help by ensuring your vertebrae are in their proper locations, which helps reduce inflammation.

Acupuncture has been known to help individuals manage lower back pain. The needles stimulate the soft tissues to aid in healing while increasing localized blood flow and promoting the release of endorphins.

Physical therapy helps by strengthening injured or weak muscles, and if your sciatic nerve pain in severe, it can cause muscle weakness in the back and legs. Physical therapy exercises can help you regain your strength and endurance.
