Sciatica

Sciatica typically occurs when the large sciatic nerve is irritated or torn near its point of origin. This condition is commonly referred to as a herniated disk.

Chiropractic Care for Sciatica


The sciatic nerve is the largest single nerve in the body and it runs along the back of the leg all the way down to the foot. Sciatica typically occurs when the large sciatic nerve is irritated or torn near its point of origin. This condition is commonly referred to as a herniated disk and it often results in pressure being placed on the sciatic nerve. This pressure may lead to inflammation of the nerve and a painful “pinching” or tightening sensation in the surrounding muscle tissues. Different manifestations of sciatica may include a tingling feeling or numbness that travels down the back of the leg and possibly extends down to the foot.

Can Chiropractic Care Relieve Sciatic Pain?

Some of the most common forms of alternative care for sciatica include chiropractic care manipulation, cognitive behavior therapy, and massage therapy. According to a 2010 research study cited in Prevention magazine, 60% of a test group of people who received chiropractic care for sciatic pain experienced the same degree of pain relief as a group of people who eventually had surgery for the condition.

Researchers’ noted that not only does spinal manipulation diminish inflammation and pain, but it also stimulates the body’s own natural recuperating capacity and reestablishes mobile functions to the affected areas more quickly than other treatment methods. At Blue Spring Chiropractic, we can help administer some of the alternative care needed for your sciatica.

How Long Will it Take for Chiropractic Treatments to Work?


Chiropractic is not a one-shot deal, as with any type of physical therapy. Although patient’s condition varies, treatments are normally more aggressive in the beginning with multiple appointments occurring one to three times a week for the first couple of weeks depending on your chiropractor’s recommendation. Frequent sessions usually decrease pain and sooth your condition.


Will I Have a Recurrence of Sciatic Pain After the Chiropractic Treatments?


Most of the time no but each case is distinctive and your defenselessness to these sorts of injuries relies upon your specific health, lifestyle, and age.

Research shows that, if left untreated, 60% of the general population who experienced sciatica will experience a recurrence within 2 years. However, with immediate chiropractic treatment, adjustments and regular maintenance, the probability of developing the condition once more decrease tremendously.
