Find out the best way to deal with acute or chronic sciatic nerve pain.

SciaticaSciatica is not a condition but rather a symptom that you experience as the result of an underlying problem within the neuro/musculoskeletal system. If you are experiencing a burning, tingling pain that runs from the hip down to the buttock and the leg, then you might have sciatica. If you are dealing with sciatica, find out how our Attleboro, MA, chiropractor, Dr. Jason Miller, can help alleviate your symptoms and improve how your body functions!

What causes sciatica?

In many cases, sciatica is the result of sciatic nerve compression. Other causes of sciatica include:

  • Misaligned lumbar joints
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Non-spinal disorder (e.g. diabetes)
  • Piriformis syndrome (common)
  • Spinal tumors (rare)

How is sciatica diagnosed?

Since sciatica is a symptom of something else that’s going on, the first thing our Attleboro chiropractic specialist will do is go through your medical history and perform a thorough physical evaluation.

In some instances, depending on other symptoms you are experiencing or your medical history, we may recommend imaging tests such as x-rays or an MRI.

How can a chiropractor help my sciatica?

The goal of chiropractic treatment is to improve how the body functions by facilitating the body’s natural healing response. Many people turn to chiropractic care because it is a non-medicinal and non-surgical way to treat a variety of conditions.

Once we figure out what is causing your sciatica we can create a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs and health. In many cases, there will be several complementary therapies and options to help ease your symptoms and improve your condition. Some of these treatments include:

  • EMS: Electrical signals are directed over the area to penetrate through the tissue to reduce swelling, pain and muscle spasms while boosting circulation to the area
  • Stretching and strengthening exercises: These exercises are designed to help with your flexibility, posture and as a way to improve your circulation.
  • Spinal manipulation: One of the classic treatment options of chiropractic care, spinal manipulation helps to restore misaligned vertebral discs and improve the overall alignment of the spine, which in turn speeds up the healing process and reduces pain and inflammation
