Causes of Sciatica
Sciatic pain can be traced to various causes. When the roots of the lower lumbar and lumbosacral spine become irritated, sciatica is the result. In addition, a breakdown of the discs which act as cushions between the vertebrae (known as degenerative disc disease) and the narrowing of the spine (lumbar spinal stenosis) area also causes acute pain. Other causes for sciatica include pregnancy, injury, fractures, muscle strain and spinal tumors. Advanced Physicians chiropractors provide complete diagnosis and customized therapies that treat the source of sciatica in addition to the symptoms.
Will Chiropractic Care Work For My Sciatica?
Advanced Physicians clinicians provide detailed diagnostic testing that includes MRI, CT scans, x-rays and electro diagnostic testing to assess nerve conduction and velocity. Our team of experts will review your medical history to determine whether spinal adjustments and other chiropractic treatments are appropriate for you following a complete physical and neurological examination as part of a customized Advanced Physicians chiropractic therapy plan.
Chiropractic Treatment of Sciatic Symptoms
Treatment plans include ultrasound, TENS, spinal adjustments and manipulations, ice/cold therapies and a range of other methods based on your specific needs.
Ice/Cold Therapy techniques are used to reduce inflammation and help to control sciatic pain.
Ultrasound Therapy involves the gentle application of heat to deeply penetrate affected tissues. Ultrasound also increases circulation and helps to reduce muscle spasms, cramping, swelling, stiffness and pain.
TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) involves a battery powered muscle stimulating machine that administers measured intensities of electrical current to control sciatic nerve pain. Advanced Physicians offers the latest and most updated equipment operated by certified professionals only.
Spinal Adjustments – The core of all chiropractic treatment, Advanced Physicians chiropractors aim to gently release limited movement of the spine and restore misalignments within the spinal column to reduce nerve pain that causes inflammation, muscle spasms and a range of other acute symptoms associated with sciatica. Proven to be safe and effective for a range of conditions associated with sciatic pain, our licensed professionals use a range of pain-free techniques from high velocity thrust to minimal pressure depending on your specific condition and requirements.
