“Can chiropractic care help with sciatica pain?”
Chiropractic has helped many people with sciatica pain, and there is a good chance we will be able to address your needs once we understand your situation better. Keep in mind that sciatica pain is not a medical condition but a symptom of an underlying problem.
The sciatica nerve is the largest nerve in the body and is typically felt from the lower back to the back of the thigh and into the knee in some instances. During your consultation and exam with the chiropractor, he or she will ask you a series of questions about your pain to find out what is causing the root problem. Disk degeneration, herniated disc, misalignment of the spine are all capable of causing sciatica pain.
How long or how many chiropractic sessions will it take to fix my sciatica pain?
Every person is different and depending on why you’re having sciatica pain will make a difference too. On a scale of 1 to 10, if your pain is a 6 or higher, a chiropractor may likely suggest 3-4 sessions over a two week period, then reevaluate. If your pain is 5 and below, 2-3 sessions over a two week period then reevaluate.
Your chiropractor may also suggest changes in your diet and exercise which may contribute to healing faster as well as different stretches.
