Do you suffer from severe lower back pain? If so, then you may have a chiropractic condition known as sciatica. Of course, the best way to determine and treat the cause of your pain is to schedule an appointment with our trusted Murfreesboro chiropractor. Here at Rutherford Clinic of Chiropractic, we can provide you with the diagnosis and treatment you need to alleviate your back pain.
Sciatica is a chiropractic condition that causes chronic lower back pain. Specifically, sciatica is caused by excess pressure being placed on the sciatic nerve. When this pressure is placed on the nerve, extreme pain can radiate throughout the back and elsewhere in the body. Often times, sciatica is caused by poor spinal alignment or compressed/herniated discs in the spine.
The most common symptom of sciatica is that of lower back pain, but this is not always the only symptom associated with sciatica. For example, many people with severe cases also report that the pain radiates to the shoulders, hips, neck, and other areas of the body. Some may even experience sudden migraines or headaches.
If you've been experiencing any of these symptoms without a known cause, the best thing you can do for yourself is to schedule an appointment with a trusted chiropractor. X-rays and other testing may be needed to determine your diagnosis.
If it turns out that a chiropractic evaluation reveals sciatica as the cause of your lower back pain, the good news is that there are viable treatment options that you and your chiropractor can discuss.
One of the most widely utilized treatment options for sciatica is that of spinal decompression. This is often used when herniated or bulging discs are found to be the cause. Spinal decompression therapy relieves the pressure and tension placed on these discs, which decompresses the spine and also relieves the pressure on the sciatic nerve.
In some cases, spinal adjustment therapy may also be recommended, either on its own or in conjunction with spinal decompression to relieve pain. Which treatment option is right for you will vary based on your specific situation.
If you're suffering from lower back pain, be sure to speak with a Murfreesboro chiropractor sooner rather than later. Sciatica is unfortunately not a condition that tends to "go away" on its own; instead, the pain will likely get worse over time, and your symptoms could spread.
Here at Rutherford Clinic of Chiropractic, we pride ourselves in offering the highest standard of treatment for our patients, and we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of sciatica.
