Chiropractic Care Is A Useful and Effective Method for Treating Sciatica

The doctors and staff here at Multicare Health Clinic in Sioux City offer professional and personal chiropractic care that provides lasting health benefits. Chiropractic care can even treat health complications that may cause chronic pain and immobility, such as sciatica. Sciatica is a problem that affects how you perform day-to-day activities. To that end, promptly addressing it can help you to regain your quality of life.

What is it?

Sciatica is a problem that causes radiating pain, numbness, or tingling in the lower back, hips, legs, and feet.

Causes of Sciatica

One of the most common causes of sciatica is a condition called piriformis syndrome. This disorder irritates the largest nerve in the body, which is the sciatic nerve, by compressing it with the piriformis muscle. Other causes of sciatica include pregnancy, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, spinal injury, and degenerative disc disease.

Diagnosing Sciatica

Since sciatica is the result of several disorders, our chiropractors will use various diagnostic tests to determine the source of your condition, including a physical exam, a review of your family history, an x-ray.

How is Sciatica Treated?

Depending on the cause of your sciatica and what our doctors recommend, chiropractic care treatment may include:

  • Ice/Cold Therapy to help lessen inflammation and pain
  • Massage therapy to promote circulation, reduce inflammation, and decrease muscle spasms
  • Physical therapy to regain range of motion and decrease sciatica pain episodes
  • Adjustments to restore spinal alignment and free limited movement as well as lessen nerve irritability that is responsible for pain and inflammation
