What is Sciatica and How Can a Chiropractor Can Help?, Manhattan, New York

Sciatica is a disorder related to the sciatic nerve, which starts in the lower back and extends down the legs. If you have this condition, you likely have pain along your lower back and legs, and wonder about the best way to alleviate aches. Many people experience relief as a result of regular visits to the chiropractor. Refer to the following guide on sciatica and how to manage it. 

Your Professional Chiropractor’s Guide to Sciatica

What is it?

sciaticaSciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve in the base of the lower lumbar spine becomes irritated or inflamed. Some of the most common causes of sciatica include degenerative discs, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, muscle spasms, and even pregnancy. You may notice a variety of symptoms, including pain, tingling, or burning in the lower back, buttocks, and legs. You might also feel weakness or numbness in your feet. These symptoms usually worsen when seated and typically occur only on one side of the body. Since these symptoms may resemble those of other back issues, see a chiropractor to make sure you get an accurate diagnosis.

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

Once you find out you have sciatica, your chiropractor will put you on a personalized treatment plan. Fortunately, this condition typically does not require surgery. In addition to recommending natural supplements and pain medication, your chiropractor will also provide you with physical therapy, including a customized program of stretches, motions, and exercises depending on the exact cause of your sciatic pain. They’ll also give you a list of activities to do at home, along with home remedies to use in the event of flare-ups. Chiropractic care typically reduces pain and increases the range of motion.
