What is sciatica? Sciatica is most commonly described as pain in the lower back and pelvis that can radiate pain down the leg. These symptoms are caused by structural imbalances that create swelling, inflammation, pain, and weakness. The inflammation and muscle spasms cause the sciatic nerve to be irritated. It is important to address the root cause or the problem may persist.
The chiropractic adjustment and treatment goal is to re balance the pelvis, spine, free the nerves, and relief the pain. Treatment for the short term includes the chiropractic adjustment, myofascial release (massage), and cold laser. Proactive treatment includes posture correction, hip/LB strength, hip/Lb flexibility, and ergonomic awareness.
