Sciatica treatment from Our Chiropractor in Milton, GA
For people living with sciatica, chronic and acute pain is just another part of life. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to break free of pain due to sciatica without help from a chiropractor. However, it's never a good idea to ignore sciatica or expect it to go away on its own. This is a painful condition that has a tendency to reoccur and can negatively impact your quality of life.
At Milton Chiropractic & Massage in Milton, GA, we want to help our clients feel their best and get the help they need to alleviate symptoms of sciatica, including acute or chronic lower back pain. If you've been suffering from this type of pain with no end in sight, our chiropractor will provide effective, 100% natural techniques to help get rid of your sciatica pain once and for all.
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a painful condition caused by the compression of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve runs down the lower back to each side of the outer leg. Compression of the sciatic nerve can lead to symptoms of sciatica, which include sudden acute and sharp lower back pain, numbness or tingling that runs down the extremities, pain that radiates all the way to the heel of the foot, and pain that is sudden and sharp that won't go away and continue to reoccur.
Sudden twisting motions and poor lifting techniques can contribute to sciatica. Anyone is at risk of sciatica, and that risk is increased for people that work in physical labor or other similar jobs.
How Can a Chiropractor Help My Sciatica?
Our chiropractor will determine if your lower back pain is due to sciatica or another condition. Our chiropractor will conduct a physical exam and ask questions about the nature of your pain in order to determine if it is truly sciatica. If we determine your pain is caused by sciatica, we may recommend chiropractic treatments that are effective at relieving your symptoms.
These include muscle massages around the lower back, which can help reduce inflammation and compression of the sciatic nerve. Spinal decompression is also an effective way to gently spread apart the spine and alleviate the compression of the sciatic nerve. Your chiropractor will also provide other treatment options if these are ineffective at treating your pain, as well as conduct follow-up exams to determine if your sciatica is being properly treated.
