Sciatica Treatments

Sciatica refers to a specific medical condition resulting from the irritation/compression of the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the human body. The sciatic nerves, of which there are two, start in the lower back and extend down each leg. Inflammation of this nerve can lead to severe and persistent pain that is difficult to overlook, occurring during activities such as walking, standing, and even sitting. If you live or work in and around Dublin, OH, Dr. Mark Kowalski of Kowalski Chiropractic diagnoses and addresses the cause of your sciatic pain and relieves associated symptoms.

The Symptoms of Sciatica

Symptoms of an inflamed/compressed sciatic nerve can manifest in the lower back, hips, and buttocks and extend down each leg. The pain related to sciatica can range from occasional to chronic and may be characterized by, burning, shooting pain, numbness, and more. Individuals with sciatica may also encounter muscle weakness and spasms in those areas affected.

What Causes of Sciatic Pain?

It's essential to highlight that while sciatica is recognized as a medical condition, it frequently appears as a symptom associated with a different underlying issue. This underlying condition triggers irritation and inflammation of the nerve, creating discomfort, pain, and other symptoms that can significantly disrupt your daily routine and required tasks.

If you're enduring the pain associated with sciatica, potential causes may encompass one or more of the following -

  • Formation of muscle knots, which leads to painful trigger points.
  • Incorrect or poor posture.
  • Extended periods of sitting.
  • Herniated or misaligned spinal discs.
  • Degeneration of spinal discs.
  • High heels or ill-fitting shoes.
  • Pregnancy, and other factors.

Chiropractic Treatment Options for Sciatica

Under certain conditions, sciatica symptoms may disappear or reduce without medical intervention. Nonetheless, given that the pain and symptoms of sciatica usually indicate a more serious and perhaps different underlying issue (rather than being the primary cause), it is wise to consult a chiropractor for guidance in addressing the cause of the pain.

In addition to traditional spinal adjustments, Dr. Kowalski utilizes these therapies to manage sciatica and related symptoms -

  • Spinal Decompression
  • Massage Therapy
  • Therapeutic Exercises
  • Therapeutic Ultrasound
  • Electric Stim Therapy
  • Cryotherapy
