sciatica-image-3Sciatica can cause chronic pain which is sometimes severe and debilitating. For over 30 years we at Moss Chiropractic and Wellness understand how frustrating it can be to live with a condition that decreases your quality of life. Chiropractic care can not only ease the pain of sciatica, but it can successfully treat the cause and eliminate sciatic pain without the use of drugs or surgery.

What are the symptoms of sciatica?

Sciatica itself is actually a symptom of a more serious problem. sciatica is discomfort that radiates down the sciatic nerve. Typically, sciatic pain is felt on only one side of the body, but some patients experience it on both sides. Sensations may include burning, tingling, or a feeling of electrical shock starting at the lower back and running down into the gluteus, the thighs or even all the way down to the feet. As a symptom, sciatica can be treated, but it cannot be eliminated unless the source of pain is addressed.

What causes sciatica ?

Commonly caused by an injury or abnormal motion that changes the position of a lumbar vertebrae or a number of vertebrae that begins to change our posture over a period of time. This eventually causes a herniated or bulging disc. A herniated or slipped (bulging) disc is the most common cause of sciatic pain. Sciatica is the discomfort that radiates down the sciatic nerve. The misalignment of the spine causes inflammation or pinching of the sciatic nerve, sending uncomfortable sensations down the length of the nerve.
Other causes include:

  • Piriformis Syndrome (tightening of the piriformis muscle), constricting the sciatic nerve
  • Narrowing of the spinal canal, Stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis, Slippage forward of one vertebrae on another
  • Tumors

How is sciatica treated

The only way to truly cure sciatica is to treat the cause; however, sciatic pain can be managed through a variety of techniques.

  • Over-the-counter or prescription anti-inflammatory and pain medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Rest
  • Ice packs/heat packs
  • Yoga
  • Acupuncture
  • Lifestyle changes

For over 30 years at Moss Chiropractic and Wellness, we have treated patients who are suffering with sciatica pain and many that have had previous treatment from the above therapies that have not addressed the cause. However after a thorough examination to determine the cause of your sciatica, we will develop an individualized treatment plan which will include spinal adjustments, postural reeducation exercises and analysis of your activities of daily living to help you recover as quickly as possible.
