Chiropractic Care for Sciatica

Sciatica often causes sharp pain from the lower back and runs into the legs. This pain is often caused by the compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, the longest nerve running from the lower back to the toes, by a bulging or herniated spinal disk. The intense lower back pain, numbness, and leg pain can make it challenging to perform your daily activities. If you suspect you have sciatica, you should seek chiropractic treatment.


At Magnolia Wellness Center, LLC in Tallahassee, FL, we offer chiropractic care for musculoskeletal complications, including sciatica. Let’s explore chiropractic treatment for sciatica.

Accurate Diagnosis of Sciatica

Before the chiropractor starts treating for sciatica, they must make an accurate diagnosis to confirm you have sciatica. The chiropractor will inquire about your medical history and conduct some physical tests to make a precise diagnosis. They might also order additional tests, such as X-ray scans, to confirm the diagnosis.

Heat and Cold Therapy

The chiropractor can recommend alternating heat and cold therapies to relieve sciatica pain quickly. The heat eases the tense muscles and dampens the agony. In contrast, the cold slows blood flow and reduces inflammation symptoms.

Chiropractic Massage Therapy

The intense massage the chiropractor offers induces deep muscle relaxation and encourages the release of endorphins that act as natural painkillers. Chiropractic massage therapy also kicks starts the healing process. It can also work to alleviate other musculoskeletal complications, like neck pain.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy relies on the gentle heat generated by deep-penetrating sound waves to reduce swelling, cramping, and muscle spasms. The treatment also improves circulation and promotes healing. Other modalities include cold laser therapy, which relieves musculoskeletal pain and promotes healing.

Chiropractic Exercises

The chiropractor will guide you on exercises that will improve the strength of the lower back muscles and reduce the pressure on tight, inflamed muscles. These exercises include the reclining pigeon pose, which involves stretching the piriformis. It reduces stress on the sciatica nerve, thereby relieving leg and back pain.

Chiropractic Care Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments can reset a herniated disc to its normal position, easing pressure on the sciatic nerve. The spinal manipulations also restore misaligned vertebral discs that can cause neck pain and free compromised spinal movement.

Spinal Decompression

Your spinal discs can naturally dry out as you age, thus compressing the sciatic nerve. Spinal decompression eases the compression the thinning spinal discs cause on the nerves, alleviating sciatic pain.
