Chiropractic Treatment For Sciatica

Sciatica is pain that shoots from your low back into your buttock, hip, or legs. It’s nasty.

It’s caused when the nerves in your low back are pinched.

Sometimes it can get bad enough that your parts of your leg or foot feel numb or tingly.

When you have sciatica, you know it. It has your full attention. You don’t even want to cough or sneeze because if you move or twist in the wrong way, it feels like you are being stabbed with an icepick.

With sciatica pain, it’s extremely important to get the pressure off the nerve that is pinched as soon as possible. The most common cause is an inflamed or herniated/bulging disc.

The first and primary method of treatment for this type of problem should ALWAYS be chiropractic. You don’t want to fool around with this. You must realign the spine and decompress the nerve as quickly as possible.

Sometimes re-aligning the spinal bones isn’t enough to fix the problem – the damage to the spine may be too severe.

In these severe types of sciatica nerve cases we recommend spinal decompression therapy. It takes the pressure off the nerves and allows the spine to balance out even when the disc is greatly damaged.

If you have sciatica, you never want to consider surgery unless balancing the spine AND spinal decompression therapy have failed. Otherwise, you are taking an extreme risk without need.

We have an amazing track record of success with this type of injury and are known throughout the country as experts in this area.

Chiropractic Care for Herniated and Bulging Disc

When your spine has been out of balance for many months or years, it can cause the pads between the spinal bones to become damaged. This can cause what is called a herniated/bulging disc.

A lot of times a herniated disc can go unnoticed. But when the disc bulges and pinches on your nerves… YOU NOTICE!

If it’s herniated in your low back, it can cause sciatica, which is pain or numbness that travels from the low back into the buttock, hip, or leg.

If the herniated disc is in your neck, it can cause severe neck pain that travels deep in the shoulder, between the shoulder blades, and into the arm and hand. When severe, it can cause weakness and numbness in the arm and hand, often mimicking carpal tunnel syndrome.

A herniated or bulging disc is a serious condition that requires prompt chiropractic treatment especially when the bulge is pinching your nerves.

You must re-balance your spine and decompress the damaged disc in order to heal. Anything short of that is simply putting a band-aid over a bullet wound – the real problem won’t be addressed.

We specialize in this area of treatment, and we take it very seriously because way too many people are sent to surgery unnecessarily and wind up with terrible consequences that can’t be undone.

For the sake of your spine and the rest of your life, don’t play around with this. Give our office a call and schedule an appointment today at 559-625-1100. We are located in Visalia, CA.
