Sciatica Treatment with our Tacoma Chiropractor

Woman getting treated by a chiropractor for sciaticaThe wellness group at Tacoma Chiropractic Center reassures you that sciatica does not have to be an ongoing condition. Our doctors thoroughly evaluate your spine to determine if your symptoms are caused by sciatica. We also look at your lifestyle to identify where changes can be made to eliminate sciatica. Our approach is completely natural and without side effects so you begin to feel relief almost immediately. If you believe you are struggling with sciatica, we invite you for a complete diagnosis and sciatica treatment plan.

Sciatica Symptoms

The sciatic nerve leaves your spine in your lower back. This nerve delivers signals to your hips, legs and feet so you are able to move, stand, sit, run and do all the activities you enjoy. When this nerve signal is interrupted, you experience back pain and may also feel a tingling, numbness or weakness in your upper legs, hips and feet. The interruption of the nerve signal may be due to a vertebrae that is pressing on the nerve, a disc that is interfering with signal flow or tight muscles that are constricting the nerve. Our chiropractors provide effective treatments for all these symptoms including the feeling of limited mobility or increased pain during physical movement.

Sciatica Treatments

Sciatica may occur from a genetic condition such as degenerating discs that are pressing on the nerve. You may also experience sciatica after years of poor posture or weak core muscles that do not support a healthy spine alignment. In other cases, sciatica may happen suddenly following an auto accident, a slip and fall or a sports injury. Our chiropractors evaluate your symptoms to determine what may have caused your sciatica, but our focus is to bring sciatica pain relief. Some of our sciatica treatments include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments- these gentle manipulations move the vertebrae off the sciatic nerve. You feel an immediate reduction in back pain and numbness. Adjustments to the vertebrae in your lower back also take pressure off the discs so healing can occur. 
  • Disc decompression- this therapy aims at lengthening your spine and increasing the vertebral space, which frees nerve signal flow.
  • Orthotics- we may recommend footwear support to reduce strain on the sciatic nerve and improve signal flow to your upper legs and back.
  • Massage therapy- to reduce muscle tension and imbalances that may be pulling the spine out of alignment.
