Sciatica pain can be difficult to treat, and most people don't find relief with medication alone. At Comprehensive Chiropractic care in East Meadow, NY, Dr. Michael Brass will provide you with the treatment you deserve to recover from sciatica pain. With the wide range of chiropractic treatments available, it is possible to heal your body from the burning pain that comes with sciatica. If you have a compression of your sciatic nerve, chiropractic will make a big difference in your wellness.
Causes of Sciatica Pain
Your sciatic nerves begin at the base of your spine and travel down the back of your leg to the top of your foot on both legs. If you have an area of compression, this can irritate your sciatic nerve. When you are experiencing disc problems that narrow the space between vertebrae, this can lead to compression of the sciatic nerve at its point of origin. Treatment is focused on opening up the space between vertebrae and reducing the inflammation pressing on the nerve roots. If you have pain traveling down your leg, treatment to calm down your sciatic nerve will take a number of sessions.
How Chiropractic Care Helps Sciatica Pain
There are a number of ways that a chiropractor in East Meadow, NY will provide treatment for sciatica pain. Spinal manipulation will get your spine into alignment, while intersegmental traction is going to help open up the space between the vertebrae causing compression on your sciatic nerve. Electrical muscle stimulation eases tight muscles and helps to improve blood flow to your soft tissue. Therapeutic exercise is part of a comprehensive treatment program, which allows you to stretch and strengthen your body slowly. Ultrasound and massage therapy will also both help improve blood flow and remove toxins from the body.
What to Expect From Treatment
Sciatica pain can make it difficult to walk, or even roll over in bed. Treatment is targeted, and you will see the chiropractor several times a week in the beginning of your care. As your body heals, you will be able to see the chiropractor less often. You will be taught exercises to do at home that will help you get stronger as you heal from sciatica pain.
