Everything You Need to Know About Sciatica
Sciatica is caused by compression or irritation of one or more of the five sets of nerve roots in the lower back. It’s not a condition so much as it is a collection of painful symptoms.
At Dr. David Wren Chiropractic & Sports Injury in the Albany area, we get to the root of what’s causing your sciatica. Studies show there are six common health conditions that cause sciatica and how chiropractic can help.
What Causes Sciatica and How Chiropractic Helps
Sciatica develops due to a wide variety of conditions. The five most common are a bulging/herniated disc, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, injury to the spine, and piriformis syndromes. Disc problems account for approximately 90% of sciatica cases. All of these conditions put painful pressure on the sciatic nerve in one area or another, or agitate the nerve.
Our clinic offers various methods of sciatic pain relief, including chiropractic care, decompression, massage, CBD oils and Vita-Fuse IV therapies.
Chiropractic addresses sciatica by realigning your spine, which can take pressure off nerves and let them signal properly again. Spinal decompression, an extension of chiropractic, helps create space between vertebrae, which also alleviates pressure, allows your spine to heal, and eliminates nerve agitation.
If you have tight muscles squeezing on your sciatic nerve, massage therapy can provide pain relief by relaxing muscles and encouraging your body to release endorphins, providing further pain relief. We offer various techniques to meet your pain relief needs.
We also offer CBD oils and IV therapy as support roles in sciatic pain relief. Since recovering from injury burns through nutrients, IV therapies can quickly restore nutrient levels to help your body maintain healing and help it recover faster. CBD oil helps combat inflammation and pain, making it easier for your body to focus on healing.
