Causes & Symptoms of Sciatica

Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed. This not only causes back pain, but a pain that radiates down the buttocks, hips, and front or back of the legs. Typically, this pain affects one side of the body more severely than the other. When you feel this type of radiating pain, you can self-diagnose sciatica as the cause.

Oftentimes, a slipped disc, bone spur, or pulled muscle precedes sciatica. While stretches, rest, and ice can help the sciatica pain, it will return until you deal with the underlying condition. That’s why it can be helpful to visit our chiropractor in Richmond Heights. We can perform a thorough exam and check your spine for subluxations, slipped discs, or anything else that could cause sciatica.

How Our Chiropractor in Treats Sciatica

We treat sciatica with chiropractic adjustments that realign the spine and relieve compression of the sciatic nerve. When your sciatica has an underlying cause, such as a slipped disc, we treat the cause with chiropractic care so you enjoy lasting relief. Chiropractic adjustments are gentle and non-invasive, yet highly effective.

In some cases, we may recommend acupuncture for natural pain relief along with chiropractic adjustments. Acupuncture releases endorphins so you feel a direct reduction in sciatica symptoms without needing to pop painkillers.

To keep you well, we may suggest lifestyle changes to make or stretches that can reduce your sciatica pain and promote optimal health. Altering your habits even slightly can pay off by improving wellness and reducing triggers of sciatica flare-ups. Of course, if your pain returns, our chiropractor is always here to provide lower back pain relief.
