Care at our clinic improves body wellness allowing patients to live healthier, pain-free lives. Along with chiropractic treatment, our clinic offers massage therapy to help ease pain associated with conditions such as sciatica.
When a person’s sciatic nerve is damaged, a group of symptoms, such as tingling and numbness in the legs and pain in the back may occur. The amount of pain associated with sciatic nerve damage can vary greatly from person to person. Some people may only feel a small amount of discomfort while others are in such great pain that they cannot move.
The pain and tingling can be caused by a number of problems, most of which can be treated by a chiropractor or with massage therapy, which provides a medication-free option for pain management. A common cause of sciatica is a slipped disc, which means a spinal disc has moved out of its proper position and is putting pressure on the nearby nerves. Sciatic pain can also occur after an injury to the pelvis or as a result of piriformis syndrome, which affects the muscle in the buttocks area.
Pain Management and Improved Wellness Through Chiropractic Care
Spinal adjustments treat the conditions that lead to sciatic pain. Adjusting the spine helps correct any misalignments that can affect the nerves. These misalignments often cause pain to radiate along the back and legs. Continuing chiropractic care not only relieves pain, it also helps improve a patient’s overall wellness, as it prevents the problems from returning.
In addition to adjustments, our team of chiropractors teaches patients exercises they can perform at home to improve their posture and keep their spines healthy and in alignment. Make an appointment with our Huntington Beach chiropractor to get on the path to a pain-free life today
