How Can A Chiropractor in Center Point, AL Help with Sciatic Nerve Pain?

Sciatica isn't just the province of senior citizens and pregnant women. It can strike anyone at any age, and the pain can affect your work, your life, and your daily routines. Some of the symptoms of sciatica include:

  • Weakness or numbness in one leg
  • Constant pain on one side of the rear end
  • Shooting pain or tingling doing down one leg
  • Pain that worsens when you sit down

Sciatica only affects one side of the body, and it can reach all the way down to the foot for some people. If you're suffering from sciatica and need treatment in Center Point, AL, seeing our chiropractors can help.


What Causes Sciatica?
The sciatic nerve begins next to the spine. It travels down the buttocks to the leg, and down toward the ankle. Sometimes the top end of the sciatic nerve becomes pinched between two spinal discs. Every time you move, the discs grind together, causing shooting pain down your leg. While pain killers can temporarily mask the pain, the only way to fix sciatica is to release the nerve from between your spinal discs.


How Can Chiropractic Therapy Can Help?
Once you make an appointment with our office, one of our Center Point chiropractors will examine you to make sure of your diagnosis of sciatica. He'll then devise a treatment meant to increase your mobility and relieve your pain. Often the treatment will include various techniques for taking care of the problem. Some of them are:

  • Ultrasound Sound waves create gentle heat that will relax muscles and penetrate deep into muscular tissue. This can relieve muscle cramping, spasms, pain and swelling while increasing circulation to the affected area.
  • Ice and Cold Therapy Used alternately, ice and cold therapy can reduce swelling and inflammation and help to reduce pain due to sciatic nerve problems
  • Spinal Adjustments or Manipulations Chiropractic doctors are specially trained in method of spinal manipulation to correct health issues. Spinal adjustments will move the spinal discs into the correct alignment, allowing the sciatic nerve to free itself. This allows the body to begin to heal itself.
