Sciatica: How Chiropractic Care May Provide Relief

man back pain boxSciatica is pain that refers down a person’s leg that goes past their knee. Those who experience it may also have hip pain, tingling or burning feeling down the leg, weakness, numbness or difficulty moving the leg or foot.

So what causes it? Sciatica is caused by numerous culprits, such as disc bulges, arthritic spinal joints and piriformis syndrome. The pain may range from barely noticeable to debilitating, interfering with your daily life and dampening your life quality. Fortunately, however, chiropractic care could provide the relief you need.

Resetting Your Spine May Ease Sciatica Pain

The first step is determining the cause of your sciatica. Once Dr Laura Priestley (Chiropractor) identifies the source, she provides chiropractic care using spinal adjustments. These adjustments are designed to restore your spine’s natural functioning by relieving the compression on the sciatic nerve. By doing this, we can offer relief.

Toning Up with Specific Exercises

Chiropractic care doesn’t stop with adjustments. Laura will guide you through tailor-made exercises and stretches, targeting to strengthen the muscles around your spine and boost your flexibility. These movements fortify your spinal structure and increase stability, thus diminishing the chances of nerve aggravation and promoting long-term healing.

The Importance of Lifestyle Adjustments

In addition to providing chiropractic care, Laura can share useful lifestyle tips to enhance your adjustments. This includes advice on how to reorganise your workspace ergonomically, posture corrections and tweaks in your daily activities, such as how you sit, lift and exercise. Adopting these changes helps combat factors that contribute to your sciatica and, ultimately, lessens the chances of a relapse.
