About Sciatica Pain
Though many people use the term sciatica to refer to their condition, it is more of a symptom than an actual diagnosis. Any damage or interference with the sciatic nerve can bring on these symptoms, which usually begin in the lower back and then move down the nerve and through the hips, buttocks, and upper legs. This can be caused by a number of conditions that Hand and Heart Chiropractic treats every day, like subluxations, herniated discs, and spinal stenosis. Most often, the culprit is compression of the sciatic nerve, and the management of the pain involves reducing this compression.
Managing Sciatica In Snellville GA
To deal with the pain from sciatic nerve compression, many people turn to things like muscle relaxers and pain killers, rest, heat and ice, or even physical therapy. While these methods can provide some relief, they usually don’t find and address the root cause of the issue, meaning symptoms return and worsen over time. In order to prevent this, it’s important to treat the underlying cause of your sciatic pain with treatment from a Snellville chiropractor like Dr. Dionne Anderson.
Chiropractic care has a holistic focus on the relationship between the spine and the central nervous system. Problems in the spinal vertebrae impact the nerves connected to the spinal cord, which is what causes pain like sciatica. By addressing these problems through chiropractic adjustments, a chiropractor is able to improve the overall function of the body in addition to relieving pressure on the nerves that cause pain. As the spine becomes used to being in alignment, you become less likely to develop other problems in the future that could cause a recurrence of the symptoms.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
After a long period of pain due to sciatica, you may be skeptical that any treatment will help, including chiropractic care. However, because this pain is one of the most common reasons people visit chiropractors, there is a large body of research that shows just how effective it can be.
For example, one case study looked at a patient who suffered from fibromyalgia, migraines, and chronic neck and back pain in addition to sciatic pain. With 6 months of regular chiropractic adjustments, 95% of her complaints had been resolved. Another case study looked at a man who had sciatic pain, hypertension, and wrist pain, which resolved 100% after just two months of care.
