Treating Sciatica at Full Body Rejuvenation Center

If you are one of the millions of Americans that suffer from back pain, then chances are you have sciatica. Sciatica refers to an irritation of the sciatic nerve, which is the largest nerve in the body. It runs from the lower back, branches out at the buttocks and continues down each leg all the way to the foot. It innervates the skin and muscles of the lower leg and foot.

Sciatica pain can be quite intense. It can affect everything from leg movement to bladder and bowel control. The pain from sciatica is sometimes chronic, but with proper treatment, a chiropractor may be able to help you avoid surgery.  

What Causes Sciatica?

The most common cause is a herniated disc in the spine. A disc is a ring of fibrous tissue that provides cushioning between the vertebrae. Chronic strain or trauma can cause one or more of these disks to bulge out, putting pressure on the nerve.

In some cases, the pinching may be from a bone spur on one the vertebrae. A bone spur is an abnormal projection the forms in the joints. The spur takes up space, putting pressure on the sciatic nerve.

Symptoms of Sciatica

The hallmark symptoms of sciatica are lower back pain that radiates to your buttock and down the leg. You may feel pain in other areas along the nerve, as well. The level of pain depends on the amount of stress on the nerve. It can anywhere from a mild ache to sharp, jolting pain that feels like an electric shock. There may also be weakness in one leg.

People with severe sciatica may have bowel and bladder control problems, too.

How Chiropractic Treatment Can Help Sciatica for Lithonia, Stone Mountain, Conyers, Decatur, and Atlanta, GA

A chiropractic treatment would be part of an overall plan to relieve sciatic. It would include exercises to increase the muscle strength in the back and lifestyle changes that may be at the heart of the pain like weight loss. The combination of muscle strengthening exercises, weight loss and adjustments provide a natural way for you to manage your pain and avoid pills. 

Our Lithonia chiropractor will also recommend adjustments to help realign the joints of the spine and take some of the stress off the nerve. The lower back and leg pain associated with sciatica is often caused by poor posture or an injury. Getting treatment at our clinic will improve your posture and promote healing.

After just two visits Dr. Smith helped alleviate the pain and pressure in my side. I felt the relief as soon as she finished with my adjustment.
