Back to Health Center Sciatica Treatment Options

If you suffer from persistent low back pain, buttocks pain, or leg pain, then you may have sciatica. Your sciatic nerve is the widest and longest nerve in your body, and if it becomes pinched it can cause severe chronic pain in the back, legs, and buttocks. We offer natural sciatica treatment that safely relieves your pain without the use of medication. Learn more about how our chiropractors can ease sciatica pain and promote healing from within. 

What Causes Sciatica?

Often, people feel a little bit of pain every day and may ignore it, then suddenly experience a great deal of pain that affects their quality of life as the condition worsens. Sharp movements, coughing and sneezing, and long periods of sitting can make pain from sciatica more intense. 

Sciatica is typically not caused by an injury, although if you already have sciatica an injury can make it worse. 

The good news is, sciatica often responds well to conservative methods of treatment including chiropractic care. Gently and safely relieve sciatica with our natural healing remedies. 

How Our Chiropractor in Alexandria Treats Sciatica

We can make a diagnosis of sciatica after a health history and physical examination. After we diagnose your sciatica, we can draw up a customized treatment plan that incorporates chiropractic adjustments and complementary techniques we offer. Our adjustments bring your musculoskeletal system back into proper alignment, reducing pressure on your sciatic nerve. As we bring your body back into alignment, your pain and inflammation will lessen. As you feel better, you can resume physical activity. 

From integrating cold laser therapy to promote healing of a pinched nerve to using massage therapy to muscles that have tightened around the sciatic nerve, we aim to treat all the symptoms of sciatica. Once we have reduced your sciatica pain, we can discuss lifestyle changes you can make that can help keep pain at bay. We can also show you strengthening and rehabilitative exercises that will help you restore your body to optimal wellness. 

If you are overweight, losing weight can reduce the impact on your joints and your sciatic nerve. By maintaining proper posture and using correct lifting techniques, you can prevent recurrence and enjoy good health. 

Our chiropractors will tailor adjustments to your overall health and wellness, your sciatica, and any other musculoskeletal issues you may have. We will discuss your plan of care with you, answer any question you have, and make sure that you feel comfortable with everything from your initial consultation to your rehabilitation. We are here for you and any wellness concerns you have. 

Are you ready to reclaim your life and stop living with sciatica pain? Our chiropractor in Alexandria can help you. Take the first step today by contacting us at 703-683-7771 or requesting an appointment online.
