We know that dealing with sciatica can take a toll on your health and happiness. Sciatica causes pain that radiates from the lower back through the hip and buttocks region, down through the back of either leg, or sometimes even into the fit. The majority of people with sciatica can be effectively treated with nonsurgical, conservative therapies such as chiropractic, physical therapy, massage therapy, and acupuncture.

Do I Have Sciatica?

If you’ve noticed pain or numbness radiating down the back of one of your legs, you may have sciatica and it is best to schedule an appointment to further examine your symptoms. Other symptoms that patients report include pain while walking on their toes or heels, rising from a squatting position, or lifting one leg while lying on their back. The pain may range from being rather dull to a nagging ache to excruciating. Although many cases of sciatica go away with time and through at-home care, medical treatment will be necessary if the pain continues. During your initial exam, your doctor will assess your symptoms, test your muscle strength and reflexes, and perform an overall examination to determine whether you have sciatica.

Can a Chiropractor Fix My Sciatica?

The goal of chiropractic care for sciatica is to restore spinal movement, improve function, and decrease pain. The majority of patients with mild to moderate sciatica will heal with chiropractic treatment and proper self-care, but some patients do require more aggressive therapies. If your sciatica pain persists, your chiropractor may refer you to another medical professional, such as a neurologist, who specializes in the nervous system and nerve pain. A neurologist may recommend surgery if you have severe sciatica. This is usually reserved for patients whose compressed sciatic nerve causes them significant pain and weakness. Many patients who need surgical treatment continue to receive chiropractic care or physical therapy as a complementary technique for pain management and expedited healing.
