Sciatica Treatment in Santa Clarita

Call for a Free Chiropractic Consultation About Your Sciatica Pain

Dealing with sciatica can take a toll on your health and happiness. Sciatica causes pain radiating from the lower back through the hip and buttock region, down through the back of either leg, and sometimes into the foot. Fortunately, the majority of people with sciatica can be effectively treated with nonsurgical, conservative therapies such as chiropractic, physical therapy, massage therapy, and acupuncture.

Unruh Spine Centers offers Santa Clarita sciatica treatment through gentle therapies that provide lasting pain relief, including:

  • Ice/cold therapy
  • High-frequency ultrasound
  • Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy
  • Shockwave therapy
  • Deep muscle stimulators
  • Corrective exercises
  • Chiropractic adjustments (spinal manipulation)

Do I Have Sciatica?

If you’ve noticed pain and numbness radiating down the back of one of your legs, you have the hallmark symptom of sciatica. You may describe the pain as a dull ache, burning, or even excruciating pain. Although many cases of sciatica go away over time through at-home care, you should seek medical treatment if your pain continues. During your initial exam, your doctor will test your muscle strength and reflexes. If you have these symptoms or experience pain while walking on your toes or heels, rising from a squatting position, or lifting one leg while lying on your back, you likely have sciatica.

Can a Chiropractor Fix My Sciatica?

The goal of chiropractic for sciatica is to restore spinal movement, improve function, and decrease pain. While the majority of patients with mild to moderate sciatica will heal with self-care and/or chiropractic treatment, some patients 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. Surgery is usually reserved only for patients whose compressed sciatic nerve causes them significant pain and/or weakness. Many patients who need surgical treatment continue to receive chiropractic care or physical therapy as a complementary technique for pain management and faster healing.
