Sciatica Pain TreatmentOoltewah, TN
Has your sciatic nerve pain lingered for more than several days or suddenly worsened? If so, it is important to seek sciatica pain treatment as soon as possible. Sciatic pain can be incredibly debilitating, and the pain can worsen if you do not get proper sciatica pain treatment.
What is sciatica pain?
Sciatica refers to pain that exists along the sciatic nerve, which originates in the lower back and runs down one or both legs. Sciatica pain usually develops when a herniated disc presses upon the sciatic nerve. A bone spur may cause sciatica as well. The most common sciatica pain symptoms include pain or a burning sensation in the lower back that extends down the leg. You may also have weakness in the affected area.
Many cases of sciatica pain improve with rest. That said, it is important to seek sciatica pain treatment if the symptoms linger or worsen unexpectedly.
Sciatica pain treatment
There are various ways to treat sciatica pain, and some of the best forms include seeing a chiropractor for sciatica pain treatment. At our chiropractic clinic, we have a dedicated staff of professionals ready and able to help with your sciatica pain treatment. Here are a few of the treatments we may utilize to treat your sciatica pain.
Sciatica pain most often develops from a compressed nerve. Stretching is a beneficial technique to relieving the compressed nerve and ensuring a quick recovery. We can administer a series of chiropractic stretches to the lower back that can relieve the tension that usually comes along with sciatica pain, allowing you to get back to living life pain-free in no time.
Exercise can be incredibly useful with sciatica pain treatment as well as prevention of a future episode of sciatica. Exercise is beneficial to the relief and prevention of sciatica by strengthening the muscles that support the back, improving flexibility in the lower back and helping to ensure good posture. If you suffer from sciatica pain, we can help you by providing in-office exercises as well as helping you develop an exercise routine to do at home.
In some cases, sciatica pain can develop as a result of muscle spasms, which can effectively be treated through ultrasound therapy. Ultrasound therapy works by using sound waves to essentially massage soft tissues and joints, which helps to reduce pain and stiffness in the lower back by increasing the blood flow in the affected area. As the blood flow increases, the healing process speeds up, making the patient sciatica pain free much sooner.
