At Lodes Chiropractic Center, we help treat sciatica in Wilmington and the surrounding areas. Find out whether your symptoms could be sciatica and, if so, how we can provide natural treatment that uses no medication to restore you back wellness.
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.
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.
We are accepting new patients today. To reserve your appointment with our Wilmington chiropractor, and take the first step toward ending sciatica pain today, call 302-477-1565.
