Chiropractic Care Can Alleviate Sciatica Pain

Anyone who has been diagnosed with sciatica knows the frustration of just how much the symptoms can affect your daily life. You may also know just how aggravating it is to suffer from a condition that the doctors can only help alleviate the symptoms of, and not actually treat or repair the actual problem.

Sciatica can be caused by a wide range of conditions, from arthritis to pregnancy. Commonly, people with bulging or ruptured discs develop the debilitating symptoms of sciatica. Regardless of how or why you may be suffering from sciatica, real relief is all you want. With sciatica, you feel pain, tingling, or numbness along the spine, down the lower back, and then to your legs and feet. Once a diagnosis of sciatica is made, some patients feel the frustration is just beginning. Conventional western medicine simply recommends pain medication or steroid shots as the best and sometimes only way to treat sciatica. Along with medication, doctors typically recommend patients suffering from sciatica simply avoid the situations that aggravate the painful symptoms. Unfortunately, the activities that typically aggravate sciatica often include sitting or standing for long periods of time. It can be very difficult for younger, working, patients to avoid sitting or standing for long. Long term pain medication use is not something anyone wants to have to rely on for help.

Luckily, chiropractic care can help sciatica for some patients and it gives people a much needed alternative to just constantly taking pain medications, getting injections, or avoiding living your daily life. Chiropractic care can provide real, long lasting, relief without any kind of medication or disruption to daily life. The non-invasive adjustments and realignments you can receive at Campanella Chiropractic and Wellness can alleviate the pain, numbness and tingling by freeing the pathways of the nerves that lead to sciatica. Once you come in for an initial consultation and analysis, our professional chiropractors can customize a treatment plan that can actually yield long term relief from a condition you may have never expected to feel relief from.

While sciatica can be worrisome and actually take a long time to diagnose for some, it doesn’t have to be a condition that stops you from living your life and doing the things you love. While chiropractic care may not help everyone suffering from sciatica, you will never know if treatments may be enough for you to find relief and get back to living an active life free of sciatica pain until you give chiropractic care a chance.
