Chiropractic adjustments can be used to help people with sciatica. Sciatica is a pain in the lower back, buttock, and leg that radiates from the spine down into one of these areas. This type of pain usually occurs when a person has been sitting or standing for too long, then suddenly changes position.

The symptoms are commonly brought on by activities such as bending over to tie your shoelaces, lifting heavy objects, or twisting at an awkward angle during work activity.

Dr. Jacob Tucker is the head chiropractor at Good Life Family Chiropractic. He uses gentle pressure to relieve any discomfort you have in specific areas of your body. The pressure is beneficial to relieve tension due to joint misalignment. The tension might cause nerve irritation leading to developing symptoms of sciatica.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica can make it difficult to walk, sit comfortably and even sleep. Herniated or slipped discs in the back that press your sciatic nerves cause inflammation and nerve compression. The nerve inflammation and compression radiate sciatic nerve pain.

Additionally, Piriformis Syndrome is one of the most common causes of sciatic nerve pain. The syndrome happens when someone has an abnormally tight iliopsoas muscle (muscle connecting hip bone with spine) and other factors like degenerative disc disease or spinal stenosis. 

When a spinal condition like bone spurs, herniated discs, or narrowing of the spine compresses nerves in your body, it can result in inflammation and pain. Sciatica is one such condition that causes numbness and stiffness on just one side of the leg affected.

All of these are reasons why you might experience sciatic pain, if not relieved properly. Some of the treatment options include physical therapy and chiropractic care. Specifically, chiropractic care shows promising results when performed properly.

Sciatica pain can be severe, but most of the time, it resolves in a matter of weeks without intervention. Most family doctors will prescribe medication to treat and relax muscles surrounding the sciatic path for some relief.

What Does Chiropractic Care at Good Life Family Include?

Chiropractic Adjustments and Exercise

Chiropractic treatment does not make the bodywork any harder than it already is. All chiropractic treatments are gentle and specific adjustments to align your spine, free up restricted movement, and bring you back into a position that allows your muscles to do their job more effectively. Our chiropractors also help reduce chronic lower-back pain by relieving nerve inflammation associated with sciatica with specific exercises designed to strengthen the muscles of the spine. 

Studies proved that one of the most common causes of debilitating low back pain is sciatic nerve inflammation. Thus, Dr. Tucker ensures to provide the most recent chiropractic care practices that are safe and effective.

Hot and Cold Pack

Both hot and cold packs are practical and easy interventions for sciatic pain. The cold compress works differently from the hot compress. Cold packs alleviate inflammation. Hot packs promote a good blood flow. Alternating both types of treatments will give positive results- reducing your overall discomfort as well.

All interventions are safe and effective. Good Life Family offers a variety of options and personalized chiropractic care plans to address your sciatic pain.
