Can a chiropractor help sciatica?

Most sciatica is caused by structural problems in the spine that damage or herniate one or more of the discs between your vertebrae. When the vertebrae in the lower part of your spine get misaligned, that puts pressure on the sciatic nerve. Only about 10 percent of the nerves in your body feel pain, and the sciatic nerve is one of them. It’s the biggest nerve in your body and it feels pain in a big way.

There are a couple simple tests we need to do to figure out if your sciatica is a structural chiropractic problem. If it is, that’s good news for you. It’s a relatively easy fix. With careful, specific adjustments to the lower part of your spine, we can eliminate your sciatic pain completely.

There are other ways to deal with sciatica, such as stretching, medication, or even surgery. Some people choose to muscle through the pain and just wait for the sciatica go away. The problem with these approaches is that they do nothing to correct the underlying problem. So your sciatica will almost certainly come back.

Obviously you want to get rid of the symptoms. But let’s do that AND fix the underlying problem.

What Are The Best Exercises For Lower Back Pain?

What Are The Best Exercises For Lower Back Pain?

PLANKS. Planks engage the abdominal muscles and back muscles, stabilizing the spinal column and mimicking proper lumbar alignment. To do them right and protect your back: Start on your forearms to avoid shoulder strain. Keep your abs tight the entire time. Do not let your back sag. Square your hips with the floor. Have someone take a picture or set up a timed photo/video so you can check whether your back is straight. This is a better way to confirm your posture than using a mirror, because the mirror requires you to twist your neck in the middle of the pose.
