Chiropractic Treatment For Sciatica Pain
Nothing is better for relieving the pain of sciatica than treatments with your chiropractor. And if you are wondering where you can find relief, you need to see Dr. Jay Edabat at South Bay Chiropractic, with offices convenient to San Jose, Campbell, Cupertino, and Santa Clara. Here are three things Dr. Edabat wants you to know about sciatica.
Sciatica can explain a wide range of symptoms
Sciatica is usually a complication of aging, obesity, and diabetes. Sooner or later, you will do something that was just a little too much for one or more of the discs between the vertebrae of your lower spine. Or maybe you will do some little thing that shifts a bone spur on your spine or that aggravates the narrowing or stenosis of your spine. You will start to feel a pain in your lower back that just won't go away. It can radiate to your hip and even down your leg make every minute of your 24-hour day a painful experience.
But sciatica doesn't just cause back pain. You might start having problems with your bowels. They might feel "paralyzed." You can start having problems with urination, and difficulties in draining your bladder can lead to bladder infections. The pain you feel when you walk can cause you stop exercising, and then you can have problems with weight, blood sugar control, blood pressure, and, ironically,, even more symptoms of sciatica after the slippage in your spine starts to resolve itself.
Sciatica pain isn't easy to control with drugs
Patients who come in with sciatica pain often report that even an injection of morphine barely affected their symptoms — although it might aggravate constipation. Sciatica pain doesn't respond to over the counter medications very well, either. All drugs to control pain have side effects, and many of them are addictive. The answer to sciatica isn't more and more medication.
Your chiropractor can help you overcome pain and disability of sciatica with natural methods
You don't have to be satisfied with just dulling the symptoms of sciatica. Chiropractic care can address the causes of your sciatica. Chiropractors may do hands-on spinal adjustment, or machine-assisted spinal decompression, or treat your pain with ultrasound or TENS. Most of the time chiropractors will also show you exercises you can do at home that can keep sciatica from coming back. The exact techniques your chiropractor will use to treat your sciatica is something the doctor can only tell you after examining you in person, but all methods of chiropractic sciatica treatment involve taking pressure off the nerve so it can heal and your pain can stop.
