Sciatica Treatment From Our Topeka Chiropractor
At Bolz Chiropractic, our Topeka chiropractor offers a wide range of services to help optimize your health and wellness. If you're suffering from sciatica, we even offer chiropractic services for sciatica treatment here in our office. These holistic, drug-free, and non-invasive services can help you find relief from sciatica-related pain and other symptoms.
Common Causes and Symptoms of Sciatica
Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs along the lower back and into the upper thighs, becomes compressed. Often, this occurs when the fluid-filled discs between the vertebrae become compressed over time, resulting in excessive pressure being placed on the sciatic nerve. This compression can occur as a result of natural wear and tear, poor posture, or any number of chronic injuries. Sometimes sciatica occurs because of pelvic imbalance. If there is a torque in the pelvis or abnormal movement there while walking, it can cause tension or spasm in the gluteal or piriformis muscles which will irritate the sciatic nerve as it runs through those muscles.
While sharp and severe lower back pain is the most common symptom of sciatica, no two people experience the exact same symptoms. Still, some of the more commonly reported signs of sciatica that we see in our office include:
- leg and/or hip pain
- numbness and/or tingling
- headaches or migraines
If you're suffering from any of these symptoms and think you may have sciatica, it's important to schedule a consultation with our chiropractor as soon as possible.
How Chiropractic Treatment Can Help
The good news is that chiropractic treatment can be extremely effective in treating sciatic nerve pain. And because chiropractic care is drug-free and non-invasive, you don't need to worry about the side effects and risks that often come along with other treatment methods. Instead, you can find relief from your sciatica pain and symptoms without risk.
The specific chiropractic service or services we will recommend for your sciatica can vary, as we take a customized treatment approach with all of our patients. Still, one of the most common service recommendations we make for sciatica patients is that of spinal adjustment. This technique allows us to correct alignment issues and imbalances along the spinal column to provide you with pain relief.
