Sciatica Care Grand Forks

200214486-001If you have sciatica, you likely experience a pain that starts in the lower back and travels down your leg. It worsens if you sit or stand for long periods, cough, sneeze or perform certain types of movement.

Though the pain seems to be in your leg, the culprit may be in your lower back. A pain reliever or muscle relaxer won’t correct the nerve compression that results from a bulging disc, often the cause of sciatica. When a disc bulges, it crowds the nerves nearby, causing inflammation and irritation that can extend along the sciatic nerve and down the leg.

FAQ

How does sciatica occur?

Some spinal problems are the result of a single trauma like a motor vehicle accident. Sciatica, on the other hand, is often due to cumulative damage. Over the years, poor muscle tone, bad posture, excess weight, spinal decay and more can add up to pain.

Can chiropractic care cure sciatica?

Chiropractic is not a cure for anything. Your body is the healer. Our goal is to restore your spine’s function, which reduces irritation on the nerves and boosts your natural healing abilities.

How long will I need chiropractic care?

Most of those who suffer from sciatica are delighted to start feeling better quickly, though it differs from person to person. After you’ve experienced a relapse or two, you will likely find that your spinal problems have never fully healed. By continuing with periodic checkups, you can stay well in the future, though the choice to do so is left up to you.

What if I haven’t had any trauma?

Many people think that without a significant accident, they shouldn’t have any major problems. Stresses are ever-present in our lives, however, and they can add up to tremendous issues over the years.
