Is Sciatica a Literal "Pain"? Here's How Chiropractic Can Help

Chiropractic Flower Mound TX Sciatica

Sciatica in Flower Mound is a painful condition characterized by radiating, tingling or numbing pain sensations in the lower back, buttocks and legs. This condition typically occurs when a herniated or slipped disc in the lower spine compresses the sciatica nerve, the largest nerve in the lower body. This pressure triggers pain sensations along the length of the nerve.

3 Things Every Sciatica Patient Needs to Know in Flower Mound

If you have recently been diagnosed sciatica, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and worried about your diagnosis. “Will I always suffer pain?” “What are my treatment options?” Our chiropractor is here to help. Below, we’ve listed the key things you need to know about your recent sciatica diagnosis.

  1. Sciatica is symptomatic of a spinal misalignment.
    In order to treat your back pain, our chiropractor must treat the underlying cause for this pain. This pain is generally triggered by a spinal misalignment, such as a herniated disc. Sports injuries, a car accident or workplace accident are all common causes for spinal misalignments. Our chiropractor may recommend diagnostic tests to specifically diagnose the cause for your pain and the precise location of your spinal misalignment.
  2. Chiropractic adjustments can help minimize your pain.
    While medication can temporarily relieve back pain, drugs are not a permanent pain management solution. In order to enjoy long-lasting pain relief, it is essential to address the real cause of your pain. Chiropractic adjustments help bring proper alignment back to the spine, relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve for long-lasting pain relief.
  3. An active lifestyle is possible.
    After your diagnosis, you may worry that the activities and sports you love are no longer an option. However, by relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve, chiropractic adjustments help our patients return to living an active lifestyle. Most importantly, by restoring proper spinal alignment, chiropractic care also helps to reduce the risk for future sports injuries – so you can continue exercising and enjoying the activities that you love.
