Chiropractic care aims to help alleviate everything from muscle aches and pains to more serious and severe joint and internal issues. Chiropractic has helped a large number of people that suffer from sciatica pain, and here at The Joint in San Antonio Alon town Centre, we help many patients who have the painful condition to get back to better health. Because sciatica pain is not a medical condition but a symptom of an underlying problem, our highly qualified professionals do all they can to address the issues throughout the body, and alleviate them to the best of their abilities. Leaving you satisfied, happy and healthy when you leave our clinic is our number one goal at all times.
The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and is typically felt from the lower back all the way to the back of the thigh and into the knees. Disc degeneration, herniatation, misalignment of the spine are typical root causes for most sciatica pain.
Every person is different, we all tolerate and gauge pain at different levels. The level and amount of chiropractic care given to a sciatica pain sufferer all depends on why the sciatica pain is occurring in the first place. For levels of high pain, a chiropractor may likely suggest 3-4 sessions over a two week period, then reevaluate depending on the improvement shown in mobility and pain level. Generally, if your pain is 5 and below, 2-3 sessions over a two week period then reevaluate. Your chiropractor may also suggest changes in your diet and exercise which may contribute to healing faster as well as different stretches to help speed up the healing process and alleviate pain as best as possible.
