Here at Adaptive Chiropractic in Richmond, one of our specialties is pinched nerve and sciatica treatment. Also known as sciatic pain, sciatica, or pinched nerve, is any pain that results from pressure on a nerve, or any other irritation of a nerve. If you suffer from pinched nerve or any kind of sciatic pain, effective sciatica treatment can go a long way towards helping you get back on your feet again.
What causes Sciatica?
Sciatica is generally caused by either increased pressure on the sciatic nerve, or the stretching or compression of nerve tissue. In most people, this is generally due to poor posture, which can cause pain, numbness, or both. A pinched nerve or sciatic pain can be concerning. It can change, sometimes becoming a sharp pain into your leg and other times a burning sensation in the muscle.
Sciatica can be an extremely debilitating problem, often leaving sufferers in constant daily pain. Symptoms of sciatica include sharp, stabbing nerve pain, tingling, numbness and weakness, all of which make it difficult for sufferers to go about their daily lives.
Sciatica treatment through chiropractic care
Don’t just grit your teeth and tough it out if you are suffering from sciatica. The right chiropractic care plan can alleviate sciatica and pinched nerve pain symptoms. Some of the commonly used techniques that your chiropractor might use to treat sciatica include:
– Manual chiropractic adjustments
– Improving your posture and spinal alignment
– Reducing muscle tension by correcting the position of the affected area
– Increasing joint motion and flexibility
– Pain relief
– Exercise and rehabilitation
– Ergonomic advice
– Spinal decompression therapy
Sciatica treatment at Adaptive Chiropractic
To ensure effective results, our approach to sciatica treatment is tailored specifically to each individual, and aims to uncover its cause before coming up with a treatment plan.
Our team at Adaptive Chiropractic is highly trained to investigate and diagnose the source of your sciatica. If, upon your diagnosis, we believe that we can help you, then we will work with you to come up with an individualised plan for sciatica treatment based on the cause, symptoms and your history.
However, if we feel that you might need further investigation or we need to refer you to someone else, we will let you know also. Ultimately, your health and wellbeing are our main priority, and if we are unable to help you, we will refer you to another professional who can.
