How Can Chiropractic Care Help Those with Sciatica?

Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve sciatica pain. Routine chiropractic care provides patients with sciatica treatment that’s a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription medications or over-the-counter pain medications (OTCs), which are commonly prescribed to patients to help them manage their pain.

Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive, and non-addictive therapy, known as a Chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve function of both the affected joint and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system function and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage symptoms caused by sciatica.

Below are some of the health benefits Chiropractic care and Chiropractic adjustments can provide patients with sciatica pain and discomfort:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Improved range of motion
  • Improved flexibility
  • Increased activity and lifestyle

To see if Chiropractic care is right for your condition, the Chiropractors at 867 Chiropractic will perform a consultation, examination and if necessary, refer you out for diagnostic imaging such as x-ray or MRI.
