Alleviate Sciatica Pain with Chiropractic

The sciatic nerve is a long nerve that begins in the lower back, runs through the buttocks, and goes into the leg. If you have mild or severe pain in your lower back, it could be related to your sciatic nerve.  Spinal issues are often the cause of sciatic pain.  Misalignments of the spine or herniated discs are common causes of this type of pain as they press on the sciatic nerve and cause discomfort.  If you suffer from sciatica pain, consider chiropractic care from a Lilburn chiropractor.

Symptoms and Causes of Sciatica

Sciatica can feel different for everyone. Some may experience a sharp, burning pain in their back while others feel a weakness in their legs or a tingling sensation.  Sciatica can be caused by any number of issues such as sitting behind a desk for long periods of time or repeated injury to a specific area.  Pregnant women are also more likely to experience sciatica pain because of the pressure of the baby on the sciatic nerve.  For sciatica issues, doctors may recommend a hot or cold compress.  For more intense pain, medicine can be prescribed or steroid shots may be given.  However, along with these treatment options comes the risk of potentially harmful side effects.  Not to mention they are only a temporary solution and do not actually address the root issue.  Chiropractic care with Lilburn chiropractor Dr. Esther Widjaja is a natural and safe method to treat sciatica pain that provides long-term results.

Chiropractic Can Help with Sciatica Pain and Improve Overall Health

The central nervous system is made up of the brain and the spinal cord.  Because the sciatic nerve is part of this system, spinal health is essential for proper nerve function.  Misalignments of the spine can lead to pressure on the nerves or even herniated discs that only exacerbate nerve pain.  Additionally, spinal misalignments also causes nerve interference which disrupts communication throughout the body.  When the brain can’t communicate with the rest of the body, it can’t function as it should.  Not only can this lead to sciatica pain, but it can also lead to myriad of other health concerns such as headaches, improper digestion, and even chronic illness.  Dr. Widjaja of Phoenix Chiropractic can alleviate spinal misalignments with gentle adjustments to restore proper alignment to the spine.  This relieves pressure on nerves, corrects herniated discs, and restores proper nerve function.  Not only will your sciatica pain decrease, but overall health will increases so you can feel your very best.
