Sciatica can be one of the most painful, and persistent conditions known to mankind. It often starts without warning, and gets worse over time. After a few bouts of sciatic pain, there is a good chance that your condition will become chronic – and sciatica will flare-up nearly every time you ‘move the wrong way’ or pull a muscle.
Each year, millions of people visit the doctor for help in both diagnosing and curing sciatic pain. For the bulk of these people, who do not have an underlying orthopedic condition, choosing
chiropractic care for sciatica may be the quickest and most effective way to find a solution.
Sciatica is a Nerve Issue – Treatable with Chiropractic
It is important to understand that sciatica is a nerve issue. All of the nerves in the human body originate from the spinal column. The sciatic nerve is no different. So even though you may be suffering with leg, hip or even calf pain – chances are good that the nerve is actually compressed somewhere in the spinal column.
Additionally, when one nerve is inflamed, which is evident if you are feeling the burning, stabbing, throbbing and radiating pain of sciatica – surrounding nerves can also become affected if left unattended.
3 TOP Reasons Chiropractic for Sciatica Works
1. It is Natural.
Chiropractic care deals with the entire spinal column, and is focused on restoring proper alignment. When your spinal column is aligned properly, ALL of your nerves (including the sciatic) are able to work properly. As an added bonus, your body is more prone to healing from inflammation and other illnesses when the spinal column is aligned. Because it is natural, you are not at risk of becoming addicted to pain killers or taking medications that can wreak havoc on other parts of your body.
2. The Results are Long Lasting.
If you have sciatica, and have had the condition for a while, chances are you will require several adjustments. The reason for this is because it takes some time for your muscles to readjust to supporting the spinal column in the way they were designed to. In other words, it is your muscles that ‘hold’ your spinal alignment. However, once you achieve this alignment – the results are long-term. Most people find that they do not need to continuously go back to a chiropractor once they achieve spinal harmony.
3. Pain Relief is Immediate!
As mentioned in #2, you may require several adjustments. However, most people – especially those suffering from sciatica experience a degree of immediate pain relief after just one adjustment.
Chiropractic care has been proven to be effective in combating sciatica, even if the pain comes from herniated disks. It is important that on your first visit to a chiropractor you insist on having X-Rays taken to ensure that there are no underlying issues they need to know about before you get an adjustment.
Also, make sure that you find a chiropractor who is licensed in your area. All chiropractor’s have different ways of approaching treatment and finding one that fits both your needs and your choices in healthcare is very important. Don’t be afraid to ‘shop around’ until you are satisfied.
