What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a term for pain that occurs along the path of the sciatic nerve. This nerve is located between the lower back, hips and buttocks, and down the legs. This type of pain usually stems from herniated discs that compress sections of the sciatic nerve. Many individuals suffering from sciatica typically only experience pain on one side, which can lead to further muscular and nerve issues. What can start as mild pain can quickly develop into inflammation and even numbness in the affected leg.
Chiropractic Care to Treat Sciatica
While cases of sciatica may not feel bothersome immediately, it is still crucial to seek care to prevent future complications. If you are unsure if your pain is sciatica or a different condition, Dr. Woywood can offer an accurate assessment and diagnosis. Chiropractic care is an effective route of treatment for many patients because of its non-invasive nature and targeted approach.
Chiropractic care focuses on realigning your body’s structure and working with your natural healing processes. Seeking chiropractic treatment helps decrease the need for surgery or other invasive procedures.
