3 Reasons a Chiropractor Can Help Alleviate Sciatica Discomfort

7:19 PM


Feeling any kind of discomfort on your body is not ideal. If you begin feeling discomfort along the backs of your legs, sometimes only one, that runs from your backside to your ankles, there may be unnecessary pressure on your sciatica nerve. Treatment for this condition includes self-care, anti-inflammatory medication or muscle relaxants. It can also include physical therapy, surgery and a sciatica massage performed by a chiropractor.

The sciatica nerve usually causes issues when something is pressing on it. Often, this is a result of an injury. A herniated disk or bone spur in the area could be the cause. So, to treat the nerve, a medical professional actually has to treat the cause. Chiropractors take a holistic approach to medical treatment, and since surgery is not known to deliver desired results for these cases, an approach worth trying.

Here are three reasons why a chiropractor can help alleviate sciatica discomfort.

Targets the Tissue

While medical professionals and researchers attempt to find solutions that will help most patients suffering from the same symptoms, it is difficult to deny that each case is still different. For nerve issues, chiropractors take into consider your body's tissue, and then, can perform a massage customized to it. Massages are known to provide relief from tight muscles, inflammation and scar tissue. He will take a similar approach in this case.


Improve Positioning of Spine and Discs

As mentioned earlier, discomfort in the sciatica is often a result of herniated discs or bone spurs in the spine area. A chiropractor will seek to re-position them to alleviate pain through massage.


Achieve Natural Alignment

You do not notice from day to day, but your posture tends to worsen just a bit every day if you are not careful. Through massage, and additional techniques, a chiropractor seeks to return your body to its natural alignment. Better posture and alignment means nothing is pressing on something it is not supposed to be.

For relief from pain caused by a pinched sciatica nerve, consider a sciatica massage performed by a chiropractor.
