How Chiropractic care can help with Sciatica Pain Treatment

By: Dr. Shane Davidson DC

According to NCBI, 5% to 10% of people with lower back pain also experience sciatic pain, with an annual prevalence rate of 2.2%. Some common risk factors for sciatic nerve problems are smoking, stress, age, exposure to vehicle vibration, and height. 

Whenever you do strenuous physical activity, like twisting, bending, or lifting, you can develop sciatica. Our chiropractor at Novo Chiropractic Lincoln will remove that pressure from the sciatic nerve and restore the herniated disc in its proper position, therefore fixing the disc misalignment.

Sciatica Basics

Although sciatica can be debilitating and uncomfortable, a Lincoln chiropractor will ensure gentle and successful treatment in managing lower back pain. They will start with chiropractic massage therapy tailored towards the entire musculoskeletal system. 

With adequate adjustments, the Lincoln chiropractor will restore spinal movement. These are fast high-velocity thrusts that mix gentle pressure with focused force. Whenever the body experiences a chiropractic adjustment, the spinal manipulation will help regain mobility and proper nerve signal flow. This is a helpful long-term relief.

Sciatic Pain Can Be Treated By a Lincoln Chiropractor

Sciatica is radiating pain that affects the sciatic nerve, which stems from the lower back and affects the rest of the body, like the legs, buttocks, and hips. In most cases, the pain occurs on one side of the body.

A range of different factors could trigger it, such as nerve compression, pinching, inflammation, and irritation. Most people with a slipped or a herniated disk experience sudden pressure on their nerve roots. This pressure later develops into sciatic pain. When it comes to treatment, sciatic pain can go, such as its own. But, sometimes, it may require treatment. It depends on the level of injury.

Chiropractic Gets To The Cause

The great thing about a Lincoln chiropractors is that they know exactly where the pain is coming from and can address the sickness at its root. Instead of having to rely on short-term treatment, you can use chiropractic adjustment for long-term relief. That’s why for many, this form of treatment is a go-to choice.

Preventative Tips

You can’t always prevent sciatic pain, and the problem can recur. However, there are some practical methods you can try to keep the back in shape. Focus on regular physical activity, maintaining a proper posture, and adequate body mechanics. By paying close attention to your physical health and avoiding strenuous activity, you could prevent the pain.
