Sciatica (sciatic pain)



What can chiropractic do?

Adequate treatment of any condition must involve the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. Chiropractors are the only ones trained to diagnose and treat sciatica.
They will conduct a comprehensive review of your health history as well as a physical examination. Treatment may include chiropractic adjustments, exercises, corrections to your posture, lifestyle and behavior. The aim is to correct or improve the alignment and mobility of the vertebrae in order to allow the body to heal itself and relieve itself of nervous irritations.

Several patients with sciatalgia have been prescribed pain medication and prolonged bed rest. In fact, prolonged bed rest is often ineffective and may even worsen the condition. Medication, on the other hand, can temporarily alleviate, but does not address the cause of the problem. Chiropractic care provides safe and effective treatment for sciatica without medication or surgery
