Sciatica is a painful condition that can severely impact your quality of life. If you or a family member struggle with this condition, today we’re going to share with you some of the best ways in which you can manage sciatica.
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a term that’s used to describe pain, weakness, or numbness which stretches along the sciatic nerve in the lower back down to the legs and buttocks. Lumbar radiculopathy is the medical term for this condition, and anyone who suffers from it may feel pain all the way down to their feet and toes. Sciatica occurs when something is rubbing against or pressing on your sciatic nerve. This condition is commonly associated with a slipped disc in the spine and can be a common side effect of this type of injury.
Chiropractic Therapy for Sciatica Management
For anyone living with sciatica, we understand how debilitating this condition can be. Chiropractic therapy is proven to help with the pain and discomfort that’s associated with sciatica. This type of therapy is a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t involve any form of medication, which is why it’s such a popular option for people suffering from sciatica. It can help your body to heal naturally and can either be used alone or with other treatments. Spinal adjustments can help you to move more freely and return your body to its natural alignment. Chiropractic therapy can also help reduce pain from nerve inflammation, which is a common symptom of sciatica.
