Sciatica is a form of nerve pain that can cause lower back pain. If you have sciatica you will likely suffer from pain on one side of the lower back. This is due to the nature of sciatica, which involves pinching or pressing against the sciatic nerve. This nerve runs through each of the legs from the lower back through the heels.
Generally you will only have sciatic nerve pain in one nerve at a time. Also, the pain will be pinpointed to the area affected along the nerve. You may also feel tingling or numbness in that area. Fortunately, sciatica is a condition that can be fully treated using chiropractic care in Greensboro, NC.
Chiropractic Diagnosis for Sciatica
Our chiropractic professionals begin each treatment program with a comprehensive exam. This includes a diagnosis of the cause of your sciatica. We then establish a chiropractic treatment program using techniques that best suit your needs.
Sciatica and Sports Injuries
For example, if your sciatic nerve pain is the result of a sports injury, such as running or repetitive use of your hips when playing sports, Dr. Damien Rodulfo is a certified running coach who is experienced in using FAKTR or functional and kinetic treatment with rehab for a holistic approach to treatment. Dr. Rodulfo also provides active release techniques to help reduce muscle tension that could be causing your sciatic nerve pain.
For sciatica caused by herniated discs or spinal injuries, Dr. Ingrid Johnson-Rodriguez uses the Cox decompression manipulation technique for sciatica patients. This technique stretches the spinal column and allows Dr. Johnson-Rodriguez to treat the vertebrae effectively.
Acupuncture and Sciatic Nerve Pain
We have a licensed acupuncturist, Rob Balkind MAc. LAc. who co-treats with our staff to provide acupuncture for sciatica. Using functional dry needling along with trigger point therapy is an effective way to improve mobility associated with sciatica. This technique is also useful for improving circulation and reducing inflammation that could be causing the nerve pain.
Massage Therapy Treatments for Sciatica
Our licensed massage therapist who co-treats with our staff for sciatica uses a combination of massage therapy and chiropractic treatments to help reduce muscle tension and improve circulation during sciatic nerve pain.
