Sciatica is that distinct lower back pain that starts in your spine and spreads downward. The pain can be excruciating because the nerve is compressed. The nerve pain can affect your hips and travel down the outside of your leg all the way to the foot. Although many people decide they must live with it as it is, the condition is actually very treatable.
Your chiropractor may offer to provide you with treatment using the Cox Technique if you have sciatica, even if you have lower back pain and pregnancy. It is a method of spinal manipulation that is so effective it can replace back surgery. Regardless of whether the low back pain is due to a minor injury or a long-term condition, this technique can relieve the pain of sciatica.
Active Release Technique
If you have a soft tissue injury that is contributing to your sciatica, the Active Release Technique may be the treatment of choice. This technique can help you overcome the pain of muscles you overuse while trying to walk and move with lower back pain.
Cold Laser Therapy
Many patients describe sciatica as a severe pain that causes tingling and burning sensation. Cold laser therapy can reduce these painful feelings while it heals the muscles, nerves and tissues involved.
Regular Chiropractic Visits
If you are prone to bouts of sciatica, the best thing you can do is to see your chiropractor regularly. Keeping those scheduled chiropractic appointments can reduce your tendency to suffer from this condition while it helps relieve the pain you are already feeling. So, is there relief for sciatica? The answer is a resounding “yes!”
