Sciatica Treatment with Chiropractic
Ever experience a sudden pain in your hip that seems to radiate along either one of your legs? This pain is typically known as sciatica because it is a pain that travels down the sciatic nerve and can extend from your low back, through your hips and down either of your legs. While this pain typically goes away on its own with time and rest, many individuals have chronic pain and seek out sciatica treatment.
When to Seek Sciatica Treatment Options
Since sciatica pain can vary in both frequency and intensity, many patients are unsure of when they should start seeking out sciatica treatment. While any level of pain warrants a visit to a medical professional, sometimes sciatica pain can be treated with rest and some mild, over the counter pain medication. However, if you are experiencing chronic or repeated sciatica pain, then it’s time you seek out treatment.
Many medical doctors will simply prescribe pain medication to help with the sciatic nerve pain; however, that doesn’t do anything other than treating the pain symptom. It does nothing for the root cause of the issue.
A Doctor of Chiropractic will typically design a sciatica treatment option that addresses the pain at its source, and it will require a mixture of treatment methods. They can include anything from:
- Spinal manipulation
- Massage therapy
- Cold laser therapy
- Physical therapy and more
Everyone is different, and a Doctor of Chiropractic understands this. That’s why your chiropractor will take the necessary time to sit down and get to know you and take a detailed health history. From there, they will be better able to formulate a sciatica treatment plan to suit your individual needs.
