A Multi-Tier Approach to Treating Sciatica in North Palm Beach
Experiencing lower back pain emanating from the lower spine to the back of your legs through the buttocks? Are you finding it difficult to sit, stand, walk, or sleep comfortably?
Well, you probably have sciatica.
Sciatica occurs when a bone spur or herniated disc on your spine exerts pressure on the sciatic nerve, or when narrowing of your spinal column (spinal stenosis) compresses the nerves, leading to inflammation and sharp or dull pain.
The good news is that you can get comprehensive sciatica treatment in North Palm Beach, thanks to our multi-tier approach at Active Health.
What Does Sciatica Treatment Involve?
Before treatment begins, your chiropractor will first diagnose the root cause of your sciatica to come up with a personalized treatment plan. We use a multi-tier sciatica treatment approach to help you find quick pain relief and prevent the condition from occurring again.
Chiropractic adjustments will aim at taking the pressure off the compressed sciatic nerve by realigning the spine. Besides bringing quick pain relief, the spine realignment will allow the free flow of nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood to the injured parts for quick self-healing.
Chiropractic care for sciatica is often complemented with physical therapy which involves exercises that help to mobilize and strengthen tissues in your lower back, abdomen, pelvis, thighs, and buttocks.
Physical therapy for sciatica will help to:
- Relieve lower back, leg, thigh, and buttock pain
- Restore pain-free movement patterns
- Restore function of the sacroiliac joint and lumbar spine
- Reduce muscle spasms
- Improve range of motion and mobility
Even after the pain is gone, physical therapy is recommended to reduce your risk of another compressed sciatic nerve.
Because sciatica may affect your gait, the patented Eccentron training system may be included in your treatment plan. The Eccentron offers negative resistance strength training by working your muscles eccentrically for strength, muscle power, and joint stability – all with little to no strain on your cardiovascular system.
