Sciatica And The Chiropractic Treatment

Clinically speaking, sciatica or sciatic neuritis refers to different types of symptoms that include pain resulting from irritation or general compression of the roots of any of the five spinal nerves. It may also be caused by irritation of any of the sciatic nerves. This type of pain is generally felt in various parts of foot and leg, buttocks, and lower back.

Apart from severe pain, Sciatica is characterized by muscular weakness, numbness, and difficulties during moving the feet. This can be caused by sudden events like a car accident or from the cumulative effect of wrong body posture and excessive body weight. There is a common misconception about Sciatica being a nervous disorder. However, advanced studies have established the fact that it is no more that a set of symptoms of a disorder.

SciaticaChiropractic care is one of the most recommendable treatment methods for Sciatica. Thousands of cases are regularly treated by Chiropractic practitioners throughout the world with an extremely high success ratio. The Chiropractic treatment for Sciatica starts with the determination of the reasons that may have caused the condition.

This diagnostic process generally involves detailed examination of the medical history of the patient. Thorough neurological and physical examination is also done. The tests conducted may include CT scan, X ray, MRI, and electro-diagnostic tests like electromyography, non conductive velocity, etc. The therapies and adjustments to be applied are chosen on the basis of these examinations.

Chiropractic treatment is one of the most natural of all treatment methods for this type of pains because its purpose is to cure the condition by helping the potential of the human body to heal itself. The treatment psychology is based entirely on the principle that reduced performance, hindered function, and pain is caused mostly due to restricted or abnormal spinal movement.

Chiropractic therapy for Sciatica is completely drug-free and non-invasive. Spinal manipulation, ultrasound, ice cold therapy, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) are among the most popular Chiropractic treatments.

Spinal manipulation or adjustment forms the core concept of Chiropractic treatments. Vertebral bodies that might have been misaligned in the spinal column are restored to their correct positions by these adjustments. This also eases the movement of the spine to provide relief.

Spinal adjustment reduces and even eliminates irritability of the nerves that are responsible for pain, muscle spasm, inflammation, and other symptoms of Sciatica. Ultrasound equipment is also used by the Chiropractors in rehabilitation of Sciatica patients. It reduces swelling, sciatic nerve pain, and muscle pain by creating heat that provides relief by penetrating within the tissues.

TENS machine is a portable box that stimulates muscles using electric current. The intensities of this current can be regulated, and this method is generally used to treat cases of acute pain. Cold ice therapy is also used by some Chiropractors for the treatment of Sciatica.

Sciatica is now one of the most commonly treated disorders in any Chiropractic clinic. However, it is important to know that all good things in this world have their limitations, too – there are cases of Sciatica that are beyond the scope of Chiropractic care.
