What is Sciatica?

Sciatica refers to pain emanating down the legs, back, hips, and buttocks. Sciatica symptoms vary depending on where the sciatic nerve is compressed. While sciatica can develop at any age, most adults experience sciatica after age 40.

Some people experience muscle weakness or muscle spasms along with pins and needles, numbness, or searing. For others, the pain is constant.

Sciatica primarily affects one side of the body more than the other, although a small number of patients experience pain on both sides.

This pain stems from compression of the sciatic nerve, which has several potential causes. Muscle strain or injury, scar tissue, inflammation, spinal subluxation, or a herniated disc all contribute to sciatic nerve compression.

There's rarely a specific underlying incident that our Wilmington chiropractor can pinpoint as the exact cause; most of the time, many factors come together to cause sciatica.

Treatment for Sciatica in Wilmington

Our chiropractor uses manual adjustments and spinal decompression treatments to restore wellness. Spinal decompression, a natural alternative to back surgery, treats a herniated disc effectively. Our decompression table uses gravity and pressure to create a vacuum that reverses herniated, slipped, and bulging spinal discs.

Chiropractic adjustments take pressure off the sciatic nerve and relieve subluxations of the spine. As we free up the sciatic nerve and restore spinal integrity, painful sciatica symptoms lessen. When the spinal channel is clear, the nervous system can heal inflammation and injuries that may contribute to sciatica pain, so you remain pain-free.

As we relieve sciatica in Wilmington, we will pass on nutritional advice to support wellness and demonstrate stretches. By performing the stretches at home, you can relieve sciatica symptoms and stay well.

Testimonials

  • "I worked for and received treatment from Dr. Lodes and let me tell you, the whole staff truly cares about everyone that walks through that door. I miss working there and I still can't find a chiropractor as good as Dr. Lodes and Dr. Wharton. I recommend them 100%."

  • "I've been going to Dr. Lodes for over 20 years. He knows exactly what needs adjusting and his adjustments last. I've recommended him to several friends who are nurses and they live him too. The staff is so friendly and helpful and most of the time they can get me in the same day I call. He suggests exercises that help my issues and are simple to.do. I love this place!!!"

  • "I've been to a few different chiropractors in the area and once I found Lodes Chiropractic, I haven't been anywhere else. I have been a patient for about 10 years now, and I cannot say enough great things about the practice. Both doctors are extremely thorough, knowledgeable and always striving to help you feel your best. Everyone in the office is kind, caring and helpful. I also went to both doctors throughout my pregnancy which helped ease any pain I was having tremendously. I highly recommend this practice!"
