Sciatica Relief at
Double Chiropractic and Wellness Center

Man with lower back painSciatica involves the compression or irritation of nerve roots in the lumbar spine. This compression can result from vertebral misalignment or disc issues, leading to inflammation that travels along the affected nerve. Understanding the causes is crucial in addressing this often painful condition.

The extent of pain down the leg in sciatica corresponds to the severity of the condition. Analogous to a malfunctioning appliance, where the inflammation starts from the source and travels outward, sciatic pain intensity indicates how long the problem has persisted or the extent of nerve involvement.

What to Expect

During your first appointment, Dr. D will assess the severity of the sciatica. The visit involves a comprehensive consultation that includes reviewing your case history and orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic examinations. We will make the visit as comfortable as possible. X-rays are taken to evaluate the extent of damage and degeneration in the spine. Dr. D will use this information to put together a tailored treatment plan.

How Chiropractic & Other Modalities Can Help

Regular chiropractic care proves effective in managing sciatica. For those looking for a conservative and gentle approach to their pain, we use techniques such as the ProAdjuster, a computerized adjusting instrument.

Additionally, specialized techniques such as Cox Flexion Distraction can be used. This technique involves gently pulling apart and decompressing the affected spinal discs, providing relief by alleviating pressure on the nerves. Laser therapy, specifically cold laser, is also great for pain relief and to reduce inflammation in the affected area.
