Sciatica Treatment Through Chiropractic Care
Do you have low back pain and are wondering why?
You may be suffering from sciatica – a musculoskeletal condition that causes intense pain in the lower back, legs, and hips.
Using chiropractic care, Caputo Chiropractic Center treats patients with sciatica and helps them rehabilitate their bodies naturally and non-invasively. Keep reading to learn the basics of sciatica, its causes and symptoms, and how chiropractic is the perfect choice for treatment.
What Causes Sciatica?
Often, the cause of sciatica stems from a herniated disc in the spinal cord. Herniated discs are spinal discs that rupture and bulge from their cartilage encasements. The damaged discs can press on the sciatic nerve – a nerve that runs through the length of the leg, through the buttocks, past the hips, and up the spine.
Sciatica causes much pain and discomfort throughout the regions of the body where the sciatic nerve runs. It is often caused by age, the deterioration of the spinal discs, or injuries due to car or sports accidents.
What are the Symptoms of Sciatica?
Symptoms of sciatica can include:
- Limited range of motion in the hips and legs
- Pain in the lower back and hips
- Tingling or numbing sensation in the legs, hips, and lower back
- Pain when walking, sitting, or sleeping
- Inability to bend over without pain
How Does Your Chiropractor in Suwanee Treat Sciatica?
One excellent method to relieve you of your sciatica is by spinal decompression.
Spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that relieves back pain. It works by gently stretching the spine to help rehydrate discs and relieve the sciatic nerve from the pressure. The procedure is quite simple and quick. Dr. Caputo, D.C., will have you lie on a computer operated table where he inputs your individual pull and force. The table gently pulls and by doing so, take pressure off the spinal discs by creating negative pressure. The pull relieves the sciatic nerve from pressure and offers long term relief when the patient continues treatment.
