Can a Chiropractor fix my sciatica pain?

by | Jun 21, 2020 | Blog

Sciatica is one of the more common complaints Chiropractors see in their practices.  According to a 2018 article in Medscape, it affects between 42% and 59% of the population at least once during their lifetime.  Although sciatica pain is common, it doesn’t mean it has to be a normal occurrence and Chiropractic has been shown to be a very effective treatment for this.

Sciatica is caused when there is significant irritation of the sciatic nerve.  This nerve is made up of several lower spine nerves and travels from the lower back, past the glut muscles and into the back of the leg.  There are a variety of reasons for pressure on the sciatic nerve, and through a thorough history of each patient’s case, Chiropractors can determine if Chiropractic care is an appropriate treatment plan.

Symptoms that are associated with sciatica can be mild to severe and present as pain in the lower back, buttocks pain, pain radiating down the back of the leg, pins and needles in the leg and leg weakness, to name but a few.

Chiropractic care for sciatica has been found not only to be safe and gentle but very effective for most patients and patients can experience some amazing results with a proper sciatica treatment programme.
