Sciatic Treatment in Palm Coast
Sciatica is one of the leading causes for people to see a chiropractor. It is characterized by nerve pain (numbness and tingling, burning, shooting, electric like, pins and needles) traveling down the back of the leg often ending in the foot and toes. It can be relieved by sitting or changing positions but often returns all too quickly. It can make standing, running, sitting or driving in the car almost unbearable if it gets bad enough. While simply changing positions will work temporarily, it does not address the usual problem which is a problem with the spine and or nerve roots.
What are the Causes of Sciatica?
Sciatica is a pinching of the sciatic nerve or one of its nerve roots. This can happen in a number of places but most commonly occurs due to a disk herniation or intense swelling around the spine. Disk issues usually occur due to poor posture, heavy or repetitive lifting, pregnancy or bending/twisting with a sudden push or pull. Regardless of the incident, a proper evaluation by a trained professional is key to the fastest relief possible.
Chiropractic care and Sciatica
Chiropractors are uniquely capable of treating the spinal and muscular components that cause sciatica. They undergo years of extensive training on how to safely remove the pressure on the nerve and give lasting relief. Some cases can be resolved quickly, others, take longer. Often by the time an individual experiences sciatic pain the underlying issues have been occurring for a long time and the offending incident was merely the last straw. Many people put off seeing a doctor for this condition hoping it will “simply go away on its own” but often condition only gets worse.
