Sciatica is caused by a bone spur or a herniated disc that compresses your sciatic nerve. Sciatic nerve pain starts in the lower back or buttocks and travels into one or both legs. The symptoms of sciatica can be minor or severe. At Ahead of the Curve Chiropractic, we provide sciatica treatment for our patients in Dallas, TX, and surrounding areas. Our chiropractor, Dr. Hines, regularly treats this condition with chiropractic care. With the help of our professional staff, we can help reduce or eliminate your sciatica symptoms.
Symptoms of Sciatica
Some common symptoms of sciatica are numbness or tingling in the lower extremities, sharp or burning pain, and weakness in one or both legs. Some people may feel an electric shock or jolt in the affected area, and may become worse when they sit, sneeze, or cough. If this is left untreated, it can lead to permanent nerve damage. Fortunately, our chiropractor can ease some of your pain and discomfort with a variety of treatment options.
Sciatica Treatment Options
Before we can treat you, we will have to find out what is causing your pain. For a more accurate diagnosis, we may order X-rays of your spine. X-rays can reveal if there is a bone spur that is pinching your sciatic nerve. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, our doctor will then create a plan that will help you to regain overall function and health. The purpose of chiropractic treatment is to help the body to heal by itself. Our treatments are non-invasive, effective, and tailored to your needs. One successful method that is able to reduce your pain is spinal adjustments. Spinal adjustments help free any restricted movement within the spine and restores misaligned subluxations. This also helps to reduce nerve irritability, which causes most sciatica symptoms.
